Mr. Hamidreza Barghi, doctoral student at the School of Engineering and Chalmers, nailed his thesis ”Functionalization of Synthetic polymers for Membrane Bioreactors” on Tuesday in the library at the University of Borås. The thesis is about a new membrane to capture midroorganisms used in the process of bioethanol and biogas production. The membrane makes it possible to reuse the microorganisms.

On the 7th of March he will defend his thesis at Chalmers. See more information in the calendar.
