Background and activities
I finished my master's in 2018 within filtration of aluminium by AlPO4-based ceramic foam filters (CFFs), and I am currently a PhD candidate working with dross generation in the primary production of aluminium. Dross is a mixture consisting of different oxides and metallic aluminium, thus, a direct loss of metal. Hence, the objective for this project is to evaluate different parameters, e.g. temperature, atmosphere and chemical composition of the aluminium alloy and the dross, trying to understand how these effect the dross formation.
