Research Assistant – Physicochemical characterisation of water project

A short-term vacancy exists for a Research Assistant (level 2),  for up to 1 hour per week on a project between CQUniversity and the Australian College of Kuwait.  The role is based in Rockhampton North and will be offered to persons with chemistry or chemical engineering backgrounds.  There are no other entitlements accompanying the role.  The project looks at


Project brief

In this study an integration of physicochemical processes is proposed as a promising technology not only to meet the regulatory limit but also to lead to a new source of water as scarcity of freshwater resources is also of great concern in Kuwait. In order to achieve this goal, an ultrafiltration membrane will be coupled with an advanced oxidation process as a green technology to degrade the dissolved organic pollutants in the wastewater. The microfiltration membrane will separate oil, grease, and suspended solids from the wastewater and then using UV in combination with an oxidant (H2O2) the organic content of the wastewater will be degraded by attack of the generated hydroxyl radicals with great potential of oxidation.
