"With good upscaling concepts, FCDI may become an alternative for desalination and concentration of salt streams of a wide range of concentrations,
thanks to novel module and system designs."
Alexandra Rommerskirchen makes carbon electrodes flow.
The innovative concept of flow-electrodes caught her immediate attention when looking for a master thesis topic as a mechanical/process engineering student at RWTH Aachen University. Now, in the final year of her PhD studies under Professor Matthias Wessling, her fascination for this technology has not ceased. During the last years, she has shaped the young field of FCDI by a series of publications, presentations and a patent application.
