Microgel-based high-performance smart filtration membranes for liquid nuclear waste treatment

Project description

Developing better nuclear waste treatment

With climate change posing an ever-increasing danger to people worldwide, solutions for cleaner and easier implementation and maintenance of nuclear energy plants are important for the path to carbon neutrality. Currently, water from nuclear waste contains large quantities of radioactive isotope pollution, which can be dangerous to people’s health and remain difficult to clean. Unfortunately, membrane separation, a promising technology for water treatment, is not designed for water treatment. The EU-funded M4WASTE project aims to introduce a novel smart membrane technology that utilises HCF to efficiently filter liquids. This project aims to revolutionise nuclear waste treatment solutions and assist in reaching climate change goals.
