Angebotsnr. IAMT 06-22
Stelle ist zu besetzen ab: 02.03.2023


The current presence of steroid hormones in natural waters and their negative effect on surroundings and human health is an issue of global concern. This Masters project builds on the electrochemical filtration processes based on carbon nanotubes (CNTs)  electromembrane for the removal of micropollutants from water. The main aim of this project is to investigate the performance of the electrochemical filtration process for micropollutants
removal from water.

The research is carried out in collaboration with the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and the
Technion, in Israel. The project is developed with the following objectives, i) characterize the
electrochemical properties in terms of electroactivity and chemical stability of the prepared
electro-membranes; ii) study the effectiveness of the electro-membrane for the removal of
micropollutants; iii) investigate the effects of various operating parameters on the removal

The research will investigate the following research questions:

  • How good is the electrochemical properties of the CNTs electro-membrane?
  • What is the performance of the CNTs electro-membrane for micropollutants removal from water?
  • How will the removal performance be affected by the various operating conditions?

Master student will have the opportunity to co-author a research publication. Master student
will need to take part in group activities, oral presentation in group meeting and writing of reports (medium of all communications and writing will be in English).
