The Environmental Technologies Development Laboratory (LDTAmb, in Portuguese) is a Research Group aiming at studying the feasibility of Advanced Oxidation Processes (AOP) for degrading waterborne micropollutants.

Those studies may also deal with:  (a) the coupling of AOP to biological treatment processes, (b) the synthesis of new materials, and (c) environmental monitoring.  Whenever necessary, Chemometrics tools are used too (experimental design, HCA, PCA, etc.).
