Intelligent filters to remove metals from water


About the research

Did you know that the water we drink and the air we breathe contain small fractions of metals? If the doses are low, this is not a problem, but once they're too high, this becomes harmful to our health. That's why Reinhart Van Poucke (Ghent University) wants to capture metal particles from the air, water, and soil so that they don't end up in our food chain. 

Reinhart Van Poucke

Reinhart Van Poucke obtained the degree of Master of Science in Bioscience Engineering: Chemistry and Bioprocess Technology. After graduating, he stayed at Ghent University and is currently working at the Department of Applied Analytical and Physical Chemistry as an assistant of Prof. F. Tack. and Prof. E. Meers who guide him in his PhD titled: Conversion of low-value biomass and utilization of process by-products as a metal stabilizing soil amendment.
