The Centre for Thermal Technique and Environment Protection

Centre for Thermal Technique and Environment Protection operates within the Faculty of Mechanical and Civil Engineering in Kraljevo.

The Centre consists of two laboratories, Laboratory for Thermal Technique and Environment Protection and Laboratory for Noise. It was accredited by the Accreditation Body of Serbia according to the standard SRPS ISO/IEC 17025:2006.

The Centre for Thermal Technique and Environment Protection is authorized by the relevant Ministries of the Republic of Serbia for measuring the emission of pollution components in the area and measuring of noise.

The Centre has modern measuring equipment and professional staff for abovementioned activities.
