Current Projects

VEGA 2/0013/20member of the research team (2020-2024, principal investigator J. Soták, Slovak Academy of Science) „Chronology of global events in Tethyan and Paratethyan basins of the Western Carpathians inferred from evolution and life environments of fossil planktonic organisms. Klikni pre podrobnosti o projekte

Planktonic organisms are known as a most sensitive components of marine and oceanic ecosystems in the present time and geological history. Therefore, they belong to principal zonal microfossils, which have been used to compile the geological time scale. Bio-events in evolution of planktonic fossils are carriable with stratigraphic boundaries of Mesozoic systems, biozones, magnetozones, isotope curves, orbital cycles, etc. C isotope chemo stratigraphy is used to identify planktonic bio events in the Western Carpathian sections, their correlation with phylogenic features, international stratotypes and global paleoenvironmental changes of the Tethyan and Paratethyan basins

VEGA 1/0196/19 – member of the research team (2019-2022, principal investigator M. Osacký) „Effect of mineralogy, chemistry and surface properties of technological types of perlites on quality of expanded perlites and reduction in accumulation of fine perlite by-product by its conversion into zeolites and their environmental application Klikni pre podrobnosti o projekte

The project is focused on study of different technological types of perlites and fine perlite material, a by-product produced during perlite processing. The main goal is to better understand the effect of mineralogy, chemistry and surface properties of technological types of perlites on the quality of commercial products – expanded perlites and to minimize the accumulation of perlite by-product material and assess its possible environmental application. The outputs of the project may have a practical industrial application. The obtain results can be used to enhance the pre-treatment of perlite technological types and upgrade the current perlite expansion process. Implementation of these changes, may result in production of expanded perlites of higher quality at lower production costs, compared to the current commercial expansion technology. The conversion of perlite by-product into zeolites will minimize accumulation of by-product material and utilization of zeolites will have positive environmental effect.
