The members of section represent mainly RTU Faculty of Material Science and Applied Chemistry Institute of Silicate materials.

Main topics of activity:

  • Porous ceramics from clays of Latvia for various application (pottery, building ceramic, expanded clay pellets, thermal insulating ceramic, ceramic filters),
  • Geopolimers fro clays of Latvia;
  • Low temperature dolomite ceramic;
  • High temperature oxide ceramic (alumina, silica, and materials on the background of these oxides) for the high temperature thermal insulating and filtration of hot aggressive liquids.

Methods and equipments which are available in institute
