About Prof. Pollet

Prof. Dr. Bruno G. Pollet

As well as having passion for Clean Energy (e.g. Hydrogen and Fuel Cells), I am also passionate about Sonoelectrochemistry and Sonochemistry. My PhD (Coventry University, Sonochemistry Centre, 1994-1998) gave me the opportunity to understand the effect of power ultrasound on electrochemical systems directed to 'real' issues such as water treatment and water disinfection. In 1998, I developed the first mid-scale sonoelectrochemical cell for the removal of heavy metals and other inorganics/organics as well as pathogenic bacteria in toxic effluents - this prototype was named the SONOECO CELL.
