Research and development work in the field of chemical and biological sciences with a special interest in chemical engineering including:

  • synthesis and inorganic technology
    • synthesis gases, hydrogen, ammonia, nitric acid and nitrogen compounds, phosphoric acid and phosphorous compounds, mineral fertilizers, mineral feed additives
  • synthesis and organic technology
    • urea and methanol derivatives, biodegradable polymers based on plant raw materials, polyurethane foams on melamine basis
  • biotechnology
    • extraction of plant products with CO2 under supercritical conditions
  • applied catalysis - heterogeneous catalysts, sorbents, catalyst supports
  • environmental protection


Based on highly qualified staff and modern research equipment INS ensures a high standard of R&D works, applied methods and procedures in close co-operation with industrial partners. The main advantage of INS is the possibility to carry out tests under industrial conditions or directly in industrial plants. The Institute co-operates with all fertilizer producers in Poland and many abroad. This fruitful cooperation resulted in numerous licences sold i.a. to Russia, Germany, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Croatia, Ukraine, Belarus, and Hungary. Our catalysts are purchased worldwide by 18 countries, including Columbia, Chile, and USA.
