Sam Rutten

PhD Researcher


My research focusses on the removal of micropollutants from treated, source separated greywater while increasing the recovery of resources using hollow fiber nanofiltration. In this research we investigate the removal, robustness an applicability of the hollow fiber nanofiltration membranes during full-scale operation.
