PhD project: Cellulose-based triboelectric filters for enhanced trapping of air-borne particles
Supervisor: Christina Dahlström
Dissertation planned to: 2025
As stated in my project description: "The objectives of the project is to design and investigate a novel cellulose-based filter material with high particle retention and low pressure drop based on the triboelectric effect. The developed material is thought to act as a self-charging electrofilter able to retain polluting particles harmful to humans, as well as bacteria and virus to prevent spreading of diseases."
Treesearch aims at creating a national platform to support the research on new materials from the forest. Research projects conducted within Treesearch research areas and the researchers who are active in these projects are welcome to join the platform.
