PHOENIX Conference on Bioelectrochemical Systems

On behalf of WUST prof., Grzegorz Pasternak, we would wish to announce the organisation of the „Phoenix mid-term Conference on Bioelectrochemical Systems (BES)”, which will be held in Rome, Italy, 29h of February 2024. The conference, carried out within the COST Action PHOENIX network, will take place in Polish Academy of Sciences in Rome as an outcome of collaboration with Wroclaw University of Science and Technology after a visit with Polish National Agency for Academic Dowiedz się więcej…

SUMMER VISITS

We are having very busy summertime! In July LMES has grown to seven members by hosting our international colleagues and students. Dr. Fatma Yalcinkaya, a group lead in Technical University of Liberec has joined us to work towards novel membranes for MFCs, while two graduate students will get their hands on MFC science: Omar Ahmed from Ondokuz Mayıs University (Samsun, TR) and Antonio Santoro (University of Ferrara, IT).

PAPER RELEASE – RECYCLED POLYPROPYLENE FOR EXTENDING THE LIFETIME OF MFCS

We are glad to announce that our long-term work on improving the MFC lifetime and performance by casting ceramic membrane composite with recycled polypropylene has been published in Chemical Engineering Journal. Ceramics are great membranes but sometimes require surface engineering to inhibit the biofouling and other negative phenomenons in MFCs.
