The research tasks carried out in the Institute are focused upon processing technologies – mechanical processing, as well as biological, chemical and thermal processing, of primary mineral raw materials and wastes. An important area is the environmental processing, decontamination of air, treatment of waste water and soil. Institute’s activities are acknowledged domestically and internationally. The laboratories of the Institute enlist the following units: Comminution-classification-agglomeration; Raw material and waste processing (gravity separation, flotation, magnetic-electric and optical separation); Nano-processing; Bioprocessing and Reaction Techniques; Wastewater technology; Powder technology and multi-phase flow, Aggregates and Process Control labs.

Within the Doctoral School of Earth Sciences, four main topic groups are involved: mechanical processing, raw material and waste preparation, environmental processing, and geotechnics for environmental protection.
