Application of Eutectic freeze crystallization for CoSO4 recovery from sulfate solutions

This project concerns a more energy saving method to crystallize the metals salts (eutectic freeze crystallization) than the conventional method (evaporative crystallization) as part of a lithium ion battery recycling process. Contact Kerstin Forsberg ​​​​​​​ .​​​​​​​

General topics of Battery recycling or Carbon Capture

The centre hosts a campus hub for COP27 events. You can get involved here .

Projects at Department of Chemical Engineering

Department of Chemical Engineering give project courses for Master students. The topics are flexible (as long as the student finds an examinator). It is an opportunity if students have an idea or want to be engaged beyond existing courses, which can be done at KTH and/or include involvement with companies. Contact Christophe Duwig .

The Atlas of the other worlds

KTH Climate Action Centre aims to involve KTH students in the making of the Atlas of the other worlds. The entries can be of 3 kinds: grassroots actions tackling climate change; municipal actions tackling climate change; a short fiction story imagining the city where one live in 200 years from now. We could provide some training to help the students to realize their entry. The Atlas can be found here ​​​​​​​. Contact Marco Armiero ​​​​​​​.
