The permeability of organized flocculated structures in dewatering in process engineering

Grant number: DP0344493


The work aims to understand the method by which assemblies of particles in water, produced through flocculation, can be manipulated to produce highly permeable networks of particles. The work is critical to new developments and improving the efficiency of suspension dewatering processes world-wide and is of relevance to the food, pigments, minerals and electronics industries. The outcomes will be more efficient dewatering processes and novel products in these industries.
