GI2AM is a Research Group in Environmental Engineering belonging to the Department of Chemical Engineering in the University of Valencia. GI2AM focuses on research, analysis, design and implementation of treatment process for industrial gas and liquid emissions. The lines of work include, mainly the removal of VOCs in air with biological and photocatalytic processes, and the biosorption of heavy metals in water.

What are we doing? »

  • The Research Group on Environmental Engineering GI2AM is engaged a project enrolled inside the programme Prometeo in which the main goal is to identify, support and empower excellence groups of research and development in Comunitat Valenciana. The programme is financed by the Generalitat Valenciana (autonomous government of the Valencian region).


  • The European Industrial Doctorate on Solvent Emission Control (TrainonSEC) is a joint doctoral training 4-years project between the University of Valencia (Spain) and the private company Pure Air Solutions (The Netherlands) funded by the European Commission. TrainonSEC offers cross-sector training in the area of Environmental Engineering; in particular, four doctoral candidates will be trained in the develpment of a clean technology to recycle diluted VO
    C waste gas emissions into biogas (bio-energy).

  • GI2AM group has been funding by Ministerio de Economia y Competitividad (Spanish Government) for a R&D project in the National program of research in the modality development and innovation oriented to the challenges to Society for 2015-2017 referenced with CTM2014-54517-R. The main goal of this project is the optimizing and improvement of bioenergy production in the anaerobic degradation of industrial emissions of volatile organic compounds.
