We have a cooperation with Hawassa University from Ethiopia for the valorization of jatropha seeds and jatropha oil and their transformation into biofuel and biochemicals using green chemistry. Our cooperation is with Prof. Tesema, Dr. Gebremariam and M.Sc. Keneni.
We have started two cooperations with University of Borås in Sweden for the upgrade of fungi based biomass as well as thermochemical transformation of household waste, organic waste and forestry waste for the production of fuel, energy and heat.
A cooperation has been established with Professor Aracil and Professor Martinez from Universidad Complutense de Madrid in Spain. We have worked together in the transformation of waste and non-edible oils into new biochemicals and biofuels. Our work is based on the preparation, characterization and testing of different catalytic materials as well as reaction engineering design and modeling.
We have established a long-term cooperation with Professor. Dr. Juan from the IFISur, at the Universidad Nacional del Sur in Argentina. Our cooperation has been on material science with focus on the use of DFT for study of batteries, fuel cell and chemical interactions. A second cooperation has been established for the study of doped carbon nanotubes and graphene.
We have also a cooperation with Professor Dr. Lopez Corral from the Chemistry Department at the Universidad Nacional del Sur in Argentina. Our cooperation is on material science with focus on the study of different materials for solar panels as well as on carbon nanotubes for censoring.
