First week after short New Year holidays, co-workers from the Department of Environmental Sciences, dr. Jože Kotnik, dr. Igor Živković, and Jan Gačnik performed sampling and measurement of different mercury fractions in flue gases of the Cement Plant Anhovo. Work was conducted within planned field samplings of the MercOx project.
He is professor, head of laboratory as well as director of the institute at Derzhavin Tambov State University, Tambov, Russia and he is also working at the National University of Science and Technology in Moscow. He is interested in nanotoxicology, plant nanobiotechnology, antibacterial nanomaterials, carbon nanomaterials and bioaccumulation of nanoparticles.
Check out an IJS video that nicely reminds us of why we do what we do and why our work is so important and fascinating.
