Nanofibril filters for environmental nanoparticles: Development of innovative protection against Nano-pollution

Updated: 2012-04-10 | Print

The objectives of the project are to obtain fundamental knowledge in the cross-over between nanopollution, toxicology and environment and to develop new solutions for nanoparticle filtration based on microfibrillated cellulose.
