Expertise on Genetic Modification, Biomass Solvents, Photocatalytic Materials Strengthens Bio4Energy
- Written by Anna Strom
As part of the B4E platform that does research on catalysis and separation of forest-sourced biomass, Kordás specialises in the synthesis and application of photocatalytic nanomaterials. Some of his recent research has potential applications for water purification, abatement of volatile organic compounds or conversion and reduction of carbon dioxide, he said when B4E researchers met in Lövånger in May.
“Materials of photocatalysis find use also in conventional catalysis, chemical sensors and nanoelectronics”, according to Kordás.
Kordás is an assistant professor at Umeå University. In addition he is affiliated with the University of Oulu, Finland, where he holds a senior lectureship in nanotechnology and is a chief assistant at the Microelectronics and Materials Physics Laboratories, at the Department of Electrical and Information Engineering.
