Photoreactors the size of a hair and lignin valorization

2018-03-07 

#News  

Smartphone-sized devices capable of purifying water for one person using sunlight; desktop modules producing substances valuable for the pharmaceutical industry from chemical waste (e.g. lignin). The construction of such innovative instruments, providing the product not in batches but continuously, is becoming possible thanks to an ultrasonic technique of depositing titanium dioxide layers onto the inner walls of tubes with diameters of even micrometre dimensions.
