NEW PhD Studentship Opportunity:

Removal of hazardous metals from water

Due to their widespread utilization, heavy and transitional metals is an emerging group of xenobiotics detected in various surface waters, causing serious public health and environmental problems. Currently, conventional wastewater treatment plants are not fully adapted to remove these micropollutants. Therefore, developing sustainable and cost-effective alternative technologies for wastewater treatment is of utmost importance to ensure water availability and sustainable management, addressing one of the major concerns of the 21st century as adopted by the UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. This project aims to improve the removal of metal residues from aqueous solutions using novel systems based on biorenewable and environmentally friendly solvents. The student will receive high-quality training in sustainable technology and environmentally friendly new processes, enhancing career prospects in both national and international settings in private and public sectors.
