The research activities in the Powder Technology Laboratory - Dept. of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering involve Materials Science and Engineering and, more specifically, the application of powder techniques on materials for energy and environmental applications.The main activities of the PTLab concern
- Development and optimization of thermoelectric materials with potential application on energy systems and the recovery of “waste” energy;
- 3D printing of metals based on Selective Laser Melting/Sintering;
- Processing of natural materials via mechanical methods for enhanced CO2 storage.
