Nanoparticle for Waste Water application – Regenerable Core-Shell
Group adopts a type of polymeric nanoparticles developed by
The Hong Kong Polytechnic University and successfully applies
in wastewater application.
research and development of this special nanoparticles begins
in year 2004, focuses on the enhancing and improving of traditional
nano materials. The research and development concentrates
in applications for industries such as medical, textiles,
Chinese herbal medicine, cosmetics, food and environmental
innovative nanoparticles own a very special structure, with
a well-defined hydrophobic cores and functional hydrophilic
shells. The core-shell nanoparticles can effectively adsorb
most of recalcitrant organic and inorganic contaminants frequently
found in industrial wastewater. The core-shell nanoparticles
are three times more efficient than traditional nanoparticles
and can be re-activated to re-use more than ten times, resulting
in a much better cost effectiveness.
April 2007, the technology won two back-to-back international
awards: the Gold Medal of the 35th International exhibition
of Inventions New Techniques & Products in Geneva and
the Best Invention from International Jury and Islamic Azad
University of Islamic Republic of Iran.
