Ettore Virga wins the Marcel Mulder award 2020. MSUS is proud!
Ettore's research is part of the Concentrates Theme at Wetsus. He has invented a new generation of membranes that can prevent fouling even in the most adverse conditions. A novel zwitterionic polymer has been successfully coated on membranes to make them less prone to fouling. In this way, the industry will use less energy and chemical consumption for water filtration. The coating can be applied to any surface where fouling needs to be avoided, creating an even bigger impact.
Ettore Virga will graduate within the standard 4 years and already has published 6 papers on his new technology, all in high ranking journals. He is now in charge of coordinating the Concentrates Theme while finishing his Ph.D. research.
in her paper, Elif DURMAZ explains how she used SALINITY CHANGE to induce AQUEOUS PHASE SEPARATION, and in turn fabricate novel Polyelectrolyte Complex Membranes!

Irshad bags the first prize at NAMS 2020 for his poster!
Muhammad Irshad Baig presented a poster titled “Polyelectrolyte complexation induced Aqueous Phase Separation for the next generation of sustainable membranes” at the North American Membrane Society (NAMS 2020) conference for which he received the Best Poster Award in the ‘Processes’ category. In this poster, Irshad highlights a new approach to prepare Aqueous Phase Separation membranes using a combination of strong and weak polyelectrolytes.
