The use of conventional technologies to produce safe drinking water is challenged by the presence of anthropogenic components in surface water, which are toxic at very low concentrations. The chemical charge of some compounds, including boron, arsenic, and some organic micropollutants, is influenced by the pH of the solution, making the effective removal of these components with current technologies difficult.
This project aims to develop an innovative process to remove the amphoteric components, further by model-driven and experimentally validated design of novel electrode materials and cell configurations for selective removal of these species.
