The Particle and Interfacial Technology group focuses on various physico-chemical aspects of dispersions and solutions, such as:

- Formulation of colloidal dispersions, such as (double) emulsions, (nano)suspensions and liposomal dispersions;
- Removal of solutes from aqueous streams using advanced membrane processes, such as RO, FO, ED, etc.;
- Determination of particle size and surface charge characteristics;
- Determination of membrane surface charge and wettability characteristics;
- Physico-chemical treatment processes of water streams.

The marine research focuses on the development and optimization of a novel hybrid membrane process for energy-efficient seawater desalination.
