Prof. Costas Kiparissides
Dr. Costas Kiparissides is a Professor at the Chemical Engineering Department of Aristotle University of Thessaloniki since 1981. During the period 2005-2010 he was Director of the Centre for Research & Technology Hellas (CERTH). He is also a member of the Expert Advisory Group (EAG) of the NMP EU programme.
Dr. Kiparissides has supervised more than fifty Ph.D. graduate students, 160 diploma theses and has presented more than three hundred invited seminars and lectures at international scientific conferences, industrial research centres, institutes and universities in Europe and North America. In addition he has published 200 papers in refereed journals, 350 conference papers and 6 books.
His current research interests are in the areas of functional materials, molecular and morphological characterization of polymers, novel micro- and nano-encapsulation technologies, functional micro- and nano-particles for health, food and environmental applications, molecularly imprinted polymers (MIPs) for selective recognition and separation of biological molecules, microbial production of functional biopolymers from renewable sources.
A Report of Nano4water Cluster on Recent Advances in Nanotechnology-based Water Purification Methods
The presentation focuses on current research advances in nanotechnology-based water purification and detoxification methods. The presentation summarises recent results presented at the second Nano4water Cluster Joint Workshop held in Thessaloniki on April 24-25, 2012 (http://nano4water.eu/). In particular, new developments in the following nanotechnology-based purification methods will be reviewed: nanostructured membranes and nano-catalysts, molecularly imprinted materials, nanosorbents, biomimetic membranes and membrane bioreactors (MBR).A Report of Nano4water Cluster on Recent Advances in Nanotechnology-based Water Purification Methods
