Dissolved matter such as pharmaceutical and other harmful low molecular weight chemicals need to be catalytically destroyed with catalysts of well-ordered 3D micro- and nano-topology embedded in designed devices. The programme is characterised by an integrative effort to start with a nanotechnology based concept and integrate it into macro applications. This is realised by bringing together scientific and engineering expertise from academia, institutes and industry.
This programme aims to perform a breakthrough step in water related technologies based on bottom-up and top down nano-engineered materials. Industrially and health relevant issues will be adresses in the following three clusters:
- Nano- and microfabrication for molecular separations
- Nano-to-macro integration for catalysis applications in water treatment
- Nano-particles in aqueous confined space
