Membrane Technology

Ceramic membranes for the nanofiltration of saline mining waters

The project will develop ceramic membranes made of silicon carbide and aluminum oxide in the form of honeycombs and hollow fiber bundles with hydrophobic macropores for membrane distillation and hydrophilic nanopores for nanofiltration. This will considerably reduce the effort and costs for the treatment of saline waters, such as mining waters.
