ICRA is actively collaborating with Wetsus (www.wetsus.nl) in the scope of their research theme ‘Priority Compounds and Virus Control’. Specifically, Dr. Wolfgang Gernjak (ICRA, ICREA) is the principal thesis supervisor of Mrs Nimmy Kovoor George, who is one of the Wetsus PhD students working in this theme. Other parties involved in this collaboration are the second thesis supervisor Dr. Bas Wols (KWR & Wetsus, NL) and several industry partners: Trojan Technologies (CAN), PWN Technologies (NL) and Brown & Caldwell (USA), the project aims to develop a novel UV-based advanced oxidation technology combining the use of 185nm and 254nm radiation conducting laboratory-scale research verifying the project hypotheses, reactor design using computational fluid design, and finally construction and testing of a pilot plant based on the project findings. The PhD project of Mrs. Kovoor George commenced in 2017 and is scheduled to finalize in 2021.
