Training of a new generation of researchers in Innovative Electrochemical OXidation processes for the removal and analysis of micro-pollutants in water streams

Project description

Training ESRs to remove micro-pollutants in water systems

Pollution of European freshwater systems is still a major challenge for environmental policymakers, despite implementation of water treatment techniques. Chemical pollutants pose a serious threat for human health. The EU-funded InnovEOX project will train 15 early stage researchers on new techniques that can detect and degrade micro-pollutants, reduce pollution and ameliorate water quality. They will be trained in advanced electrochemical wastewater treatment methods. The project will focus on the research of alternative solutions, the development of integrated photocatalytic and electrochemical oxidation methods and the perfection of micro-pollutants’ detection and separation techniques. The ESRs will be also trained in the estimation of the impacts of proposed methods on wastewater treatment and the environment.
