Project description

The goal of this project is to quantify the effect of an electric field on the filtration and solubilisation of liposomes. Furthermore, the project will investigate how electro-pressure filtration can be optimized with respect to kinetics and separation efficiency. The knowledge gained in this project will be used for developing and optimizing pollutant removeal through liposomes.
