(Term: Apr. 2017 - Dec. 2018)
Together with the project partners SmartMembranes GmbH und dem Institute for Natural Materials Technology of the TU Dresden In this project, Rhenotherm will develop surfaces with a markedly reduced fouling tendency. Both so-called biofouling, ie the growth of surfaces with bacteria, algae, shells, etc. as well as inorganic fouling, ie the adhesion of particulate impurities such as lime, salts, etc. should ideally be prevented or significantly reduced.
