The Leibniz Institute for Plasma Science and Technology (INP) in Greifswald, Germany has developed a new method for the production of ultra-hydrophobic organosilicon polymer coatings. These coatings are an alternative to per- and polyfluorinated compounds (PFAS), which are still used in many industrial applications and sectors.
Researchers in the PHYSICS & ECOLOGY project led by Dr. Marcel Schneider from the Leibniz Institute for Plasma Science and Technology (INP) in Greifswald have now achieved very good results: Physical methods such as plasma are competitive with established methods such as ozonation, UV treatment or activated carbon in terms of the decontamination of waste or process water.
The 23rd International Conference on Gas Discharges and their Applications (GD2023) ended on Friday in Greifswald, Germany. Around 130 international scientists and industry representatives from 21 countries spent a week exchanging information on the latest developments in plasma research.
The Leibniz Institute for Plasma Science and Technology (INP) has received the "HR Excellence in Research Award" for the second time. The seal of quality of the European Union certifies that the German research institute is committed to providing the best possible working conditions for scientists.
