  • Valorisation of agroindustrial wastes through microalgae growth.
  • Reduction of phenolic compounds in olive-mill wastes.
  • Qualitative and quantitative determination of drugs in environmental samples.
  • Hydrogen production from microalgae.
  • Hydrogen production from waste paper.
  • Production of bio-surfactant from agroindustrial waste streams.
  • Organic nitrogen removal from wastewater streams (via bypass nitrate production).
  • Control of antimicrobial activity of new materials-photocatalysts.
