Project description

This projects wants to apply the added values of microbially precipitated nanocatalysts in water treatment for purification of air. For a number of target pollutants, new types of reactors and new types of catalysts (new biologically precipitated metals, bimetallic catalysts) will be investigated. Next to that, also an detailed caracerisation of the formed nanoparticles are the scope of this research.
