The research group Sustainable Organic Chemistry and Technology (EnVOC) focuses on three subdisciplines:

1. Environmental analysis - the occurrence, fate and behaviour of organic micro-pollutants;
2. Environmental technology - innovative biological and physical-chemical end-of-pipe technologies to abate organic chemical pollution in mainly waste gases and wastewaters;
3. Clean technology - a holistic approach that pursues environmental performance at the production itself considering the resource intake, the production technology, the product-service relation, and the end-of-life fate of the product.

The marine research inter alia focuses on the following topics: the sustainability analysis of algae production systems, the integration of linear inverse models and ecological network analysis into life cycle assessment for fish production and the development of new strategies for monitoring and risk assessment of hazardous chemicals in the marine environment with passive samplers.
