Lithuanian Energy Institute (LEI)

The Lithuanian Energy Institute acts as a co-worker in WP 2, WP 3, WP 4 and additional in WP 5.

This institute deals with the conduction of experiments. LEI offers the technology to synthesise metal oxide catalytic coatings employing non-equilibrium plasma at atmospheric pressure as well as the characterisation of the final product. Based on experimental research, a plasma spray installation will be designed, constructed and applied. Catalytic coatings will be obtained from carrying mixtures of dispersed particles using plasma jet reactor.

The project implementation of LEI includes the following main phases: 

  • Creation of specific equipment which should be suitable for synthesis of catalytic coatings;
  • Evaluation of plasma-technological processes for the production of highly developed surfaces;
  • Selection and identification of representative materials for plasma treatment processes;
  • Realisation of the plasma process for producing catalysts;
  • Characterisation of deposited coatings;
  • Evaluation of physical and catalytic properties.

Kaunas University of Technology (KTU)

This partner is co-working in WP 2, WP 3, WP 4, WP 5 and WP6.

The main activities of the Kaunas University of Technology are associated with WP3. The KTU is responsible for performing eco-efficiency analysis of plasma technologies and the evaluation of the impact of plasma based treatment technologies to the environment. This task is being carried out by the following steps. Initially, the available literature on plasma technologies for environmental protection and application of environmental assessment tools for assessing eco-efficiency of the processes will be reviewed.

Based on these findings, an appropriate environmental analysis method will be selected. Afterwards, several most representative plasma based technologies for environmental protection (based on findings from WP4-6) will be selected with the aim to compare the environmental performance to "traditional" technologies for removal of selected pollutants. These tasks will result in producing reports on eco-efficiency analysis of plasma-based technologies.

Vilnius Gediminas Technical University (VGTU)

The Vilnius Gediminas Technical University is
the leader of the WP 3
and also a co-worker in WP 4 and WP 5. 


The Vilnius Gediminas Technical University works on the analysis of: 

  • Emission inventories and the market for plasma technology;
  • Data from Lithuania on amounts of pollutants emitted into the atmosphere or water which can be treated by plasma-based applications;
  • Data on plants that could be potential users of pollutant treatment by plasma-based technologies in Lithuania.

Furthermore, the VGTU will carry out the eco-efficiency analysis of plasma technologies and the evaluation of plasma based treatment technology's impact. This includes multiple environmental analyses, such as environmental impact assessment, life cycle analyses etc.
Another task is to map specific NOx and SOx emissions in the Baltic Sea Region. Therefore the VGTU is going to:

  • Share and enforce the current expertise in NOx and SOx reduction in the BSR;
  • Analyse the process of VOC removals and control it in the presence of other hazardous pollutants;
  • Identify strengths, weaknesses and the optimum application field of the different plasma-based technologies.
