Lucyna Bilińska, PhD, Eng – researcher at the Department of Molecular Engineering of the Technical University of Łódź and Head of the R&D department at the Biliński Textile Plant, won the “Small Grant Scheme” competition. Her project titled “Modern techniques for the treatment and recycling of textile wastewater using plasma catalysts” was included in the list of 27 applications recommended for co-financing. A total of 5 million euros has been allocated for the implementation of the awarded projects.

The goal of the “Small Grand Scheme” competition, implemented as part of the Norwegian Financial Mechanism 2014-2021, is to support female scientists in their scientific career development.

As part of the competition, individual entities from Poland can receive funding for two-year research projects in the field of industrial research or development works.

The project led by Lucyna Bilińska, PhD, Eng will be implemented with the participation of research team members led by Prof. Jacek Tyczkowski. The technical solution (plasma catalyst reactor) will also be tested on an enlarged scale under industrial conditions. This method has significant implementation potential. We hope it will become an effective tool for even greater protection of water resources.

Congratulations and we keep our fingers crossed for the project!
