GI2AM is the Research Group on Environmental Engineering belonging to the Department of Chemical Engineering in the Universitat de València. GI2AM focuses on research, analysis, design and implementation of treatment processes for industrial gas and liquid emissions.

GI2AM was founded in 2002 by 4 assistant professors, Prof. Carmen Gabaldón García, Prof. Paula Marzal Doménech, Prof. Vicente Martínez Soria, and Prof. Josep Manuel Penya-roja Oltra, with previous research experience in water treatment (including pilot plant exploitation), soil contamination, and chemical processes such as heterogeneous catalysis and vapor- liquid separation. Nowadays, the staff of GI2AM has been broaden with 4 PhD Doctors and 3 PhD students, as well as technical and administrative support staff of the Department of Chemical Engineering. Group members

The research lines of GI2AM focus on promoting environmental and economical sustainable technologies as an alternative to conventional technologies for the treatment of air and water industrial emissions. The current lines of work include the removal of VOCs in air with biological and photocatalytic processes, and the biosorption of heavy metals in water. Research

The GI2AM activities are funded with national and regional programmes, and with R + D contracts with companies resulting of the intensive collaboration with industrial partners to promote the transfer of the technology. Projects

The professors of GI2AM teach in the Chemical Engineering degree and in the Environmental Science degree of the Universitat de València, and in the interuniversity Master of Environmental Engineering of the Universitat de Valencia and the Universitat Politécnica de València.
