Bionanocomposites tailored to adsorb and degrade organic micropollutants in wastewaters
The overall goal of the project is to develop tailored bionanocomposites for degradation of organic micropollutants in a combined adsorption/degradation process.

The ambition in this project is to use green and inexpensive precursors and simple modification procedures by avoiding energy-intensive processes. In addition, the project investigates the degradation pathways and mechanisms for the studied pollutants, as well as the reusability and stability of the developed bionanocomposites. The project is led by Dr. Tiina Leiviskä.
