Membrane technology is used in a wide range of industrial applications, such as wastewater treatment and separation of emulsions and suspensions. The use of membrane technology is mainly impaired by the fouling process, which deteriorates the membrane performance. Themal convection greatly influences flow profiles within the membrane and could potentially reduce polirization effects and fouling.

This thesis studies advanced strategies to avoid and/or remove fouling. The thesis comprises the following steps:

  • Experimental investigation of the filtration behavior of newly developed inorganic membranes
  • Development of fouling prevention strategies
  • Testing

It is possible to write the thesis either in English or German. If you are interested in this topic please send me an Email (
