Separation of nanoparticles by electrocoagulation

Electro-agglomeration and separation of Engineered NanoParticles from process and waste water in the coating industry to minimise health and environmental risks

The Project „Electro-agglomeration and separation of Engineered NanoParticles from process and waste water in the coating industry to minimise health and environmental risks“ under acronyme Nanofloc was solved under financial support of 7th Framework Programme of European Union for small and medium enterprises in 2013 – 2015.

The project was focused on developing a new technology based on nanosuspensions destabilization and agglomeration of charged nanoparticles using electroflocculation. Agglomeration of particles was achieved by creating an electric field in the treated liquid. Through the electric field the charge of particles can be regulated. The resulting agglomerates were stabilised electrolytically in the same reactor. The project output was electroflocculation reactor equipped with a sacrificial and inert electrodes. Development of the device was based on an existing technology of the coordinator Westmatic.

Consortium consisted of Westmatic from Sweden, ASIO Ltd., BAMO Mesures SAS from France, Melotec Kunststoffverarbeitungs GmbH, Fraunhofer IGB from Germany, Technologisk Institutt and Kongsberg Automotive AS from Norway.
