The Particle and Interfacial Technology (PaInT) 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 reverse osmosis (RO), forward osmosis (FO), electrodialysis (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 optimisation of a novel hybrid membrane process for energy-efficient seawater desalination.
