Filipa Gomes

Junior Researcher

Background: PhD in in Sustainable Chemistry  – Faculty of Sciences, University of Porto, Portugal

Major research topics

  • Determination of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) concentration levels in rubber crumb from end-of-life tires (ELTs) by chromatography
  • Design of new technologies based on fluidized bed and/or biosensor systems to applied to synthetic turf fields for benzo(a)pyrene degradation
  • Environmental risk assessment
  • Life cycle assessment
