The core goal of the Department is to research and develop new processes and technologies that reduce the consumption of resources (mainly materials, energy, water and chemicals), significantly reducing environmental impact.
The different lines of work with companies focus on new materials, products and processes that are more environmentally friendly and facilitate the transition to a circular economy. AITEX works in many areas, providing companies with much more sustainable solutions.
