Research Profile

The world’s water need will increase in the coming decades and is considered to be one of the greatest challenges. Large quantities of saline wastewater could be reused after purification, but (partial) salinity and micropollutant removal is needed. The Water Nexus project focuses on the formation of charged nanofiltration (NF) membranes, which shows high potential to treat wastewater.  NF membranes have a separation mechanism based on size and charge and have a low operating pressure. The membranes will be produced by alternating nanometer thick polyelectrolyte layers using the Layer-by-Layer technique. This project results in the production and characterization of NF membranes in terms of morphology, performance and stability using artificial and industrial feed streams.
