TICASS – Tecnologie Innovative per il Controllo Ambientale e lo Sviluppo Sostenibile – is a non-profit consortium, estabilished  in 2010 by the University of Genoa, Research bodies, small  to medium enterprises and large companies.

The Consortium promotes Research and Development, and Technological Transfer activities in the Energy and Environment domains, particularly in Sustainable Development and Quality of Life areas.

TICASS coordinates the aforementioned activities at regional, national and international levels, with the main objective of expanding knowledge and introducing innovative technologies through international cooperation, collaboration with universities and other public and private bodies.

The Consortium also supports training and technical-professional growth through scholarships, research grants and collaboration contracts, and through special agreements with universities, PhD courses, first and second level Master’s Degrees, and advanced courses.

With reference to Delibera Regionale n.553 20/05/2011, Ticass officially supervises Polo Regionale di Innovazione Tecnologica “Energia-Ambiente”.

Members of the consortium

The Ticass Consortium links the skills of private and public companies and research centers, by putting together knowledge, laboratories, instrumental resources and skills to achieve its objectives.

University

The Department of Chemistry and Industrial Chemistry (DCIC)

DCIC interests include monitoring and environmental control (at water, air, emissions and inputs), analytical assessments of chemical and chemical-physical type, electron microscopy applied to different fields of investigation, the development of processes with low environmental impact (for example, the laboratory of Membrane Processes and Technologies), the development of integrated purification technologies, processes and remediation plans and the problems related to REACH application. All of which are very important for Ticass.
