Institute of Power Engineering Ceramic Department CEREL. It has been functioning since 1972. CEREL is located in Boguchwała near Rzeszów.


In the structures of Ceramic Department there are two units:

1. Ceramic Engineering Plant composed of: Laboratory of Testing Raw and Ceramic Materials as well as Solid Oxide Fuel Cells Material Laboratory.

2. Prototype Plant including Start-up & Experimental Production Department, which is supported by Technological and Constructional Lab.

Our activities are concentrated on research of traditional, modern and advanced ceramic materials as well as on manufacturing broad range of products out of majority oxide ceramic materials.

Having our own research department allows us rapid implementation of modern ceramic materials and new products.

CEREL specializes in precision machined alumina and zirconium elements of machines and devices.

Our products are successfully used in many branches of industries, such as: power, motorization, metallurgy, chemical, aeronautics, arboreal, and many others.

Our goal is to gain domestic and foreign trade partners, who are interested in applying ceramic high wear resistant parts in their machines and equipment.

We have innovative technical potential and highly qualified staff, which allows us to develop and carry out professional scientific research at a scope of implementation, manufacturing, application and sales.

  • The second workshop of CERMAT2 project

On the 7th of April 2017 at Grand Hotel in Rzeszów the second workshop of CERMAT2 project entitled "Manufacturing technologies, properties and applications of advanced structural ceramic materials" took place. It was organized by Ceramic Department CEREL of Institute of Power Engineering. The workshop was a scientific forum where international experts from both academia and industry discussed about research and development in the field of ceramic science. The aim of the workshop was to present current manufacturing technologies used in industrial processes, introduce the properties and propose applications of advanced structural ceramic materials and disseminate recent discoveries in the modelling of ceramics.


In the plenary session the invited lectures were given by prof. Mirosław M. Bućko -  Head of Department of Ceramics and Refractories, Faculty of Materials Science and Ceramics, AGH University of Science and Technology and prof. Zbigniew Pędzich from Department of Ceramics and Refractories, Faculty of Materials Science and Ceramics, AGH University of Science and Technology.


During the workshop, sixteen standard lectures were also given, who authors and co-authors where scientists from Ceramic Department CEREL and Thermal Processes Department of Institute of Power Engineering and Universities of Belgrade, Trento, Liverpool, Aberystwyth, Rzeszow University of Technology as well as Vesuvius group and Enginsoft companies.
