A PhD thesis on Membranes for bioreactors

This week, we will have our third PhD defense in three weeks (one defense per week). The last two defenses went quite well, and I hope this last one will also go well. This time, our PhD student Hamidreza Barghi will defend his thesis that is about making membranes for membrane bioreactors. These membranes are quite specific. They have to retain the cells, while being permeable to the cells feed (substrates) and their products (metabolites), the gases (such as CO2, and methane), and they have to resist the harsh conditions in the reactors.

The thesis can be downloaded here!
