Founded in 1949, INSEMEX is a one of a kind R&D institute in Romania and one of the few in Europe whose main activities focus on the improvement of the OHS level in hazardous toxic/explosive/flammable industries.
INSEMEX performs basic and applied research, technological development and provides technical solutions in the regulated fields for public interest, regarding the increase of the OHS level for activities carried out in industries endangered by explosive and toxic atmospheres, underground and surface.
Research directions: explosion protection, explosives and blasting techniques, safety of equipment and facilities, safety of mineral resources, environmental protection, mining and industrial ventilation, classification of underground works in terms of gas releases, rescue operations in toxic /explosive/flammable atmospheres.
The institute also performs technical investigations for establishing the causes which led to explosions or fires, for the industry and for the civilian area.
