Project description

The core of the project is an electrochemical process, namely capacitive elektrorecipitatie, which aims to overcome the limitations of conventional and best available technologies. This process is combined with advanced knowledge of the speciation, treatment with membrane electrolysis to bring the waste into the correct specifications and use of innovative carbon materials with ion template to obtain higher selectivity.
