Research content

We refer to solid and/or liquid particles dispersed in gas phase as 'aerosol'. Our lab deals with behavior of aerosol particles and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) emitted from various sorts of anthropogenic sources including indoor sources, incinerators and plants, and propose their treatment technologies suitable for each application.
