Sustainable energy production is a huge challenge in our world. Obtaining energy from environmental resources can play an important role in this regard. For example, electricity can be produced from advanced mixing of salt and fresh water in a process called reverse electro dialysis or blue energy. In this visionary theme electrochemistry, membrane technology, and proces technology are combined in the research program.
