Filtration of Charged Aerosols


Theme: Aerosol Technology  

Start date: Cohort 1: 2019

Supervisors: Dr Marc Stettler (Imperial) and Dr Catherine Noakes (Leeds)

Conveying and generation of powders can lead to very high levels of charge on particles, affecting their transport agglomeration and ultimate removal from the environment. Through modelling and experiments this project seeks to optimize collection of particles in filtration processes accounting for and manipulating electrostatic charge.
