Capacitive electrochemical separation processes are an interesting alternative to conventional separation processes, especially in the field of biotechnology. The project "Multi-scale simulation for the design of capacitive electrochemical separation processes" with the acronym S3KAPEL aims to achieve a fundamental understanding of the mechanisms occurring at the interface of conductive sorption materials in the presence of an electrical potential by means of a multi-scale approach. Two procedures are simulated and experimentally verified within the project. Firstly, a chromatographic process using various carbon materials acting as working electrode as well as stationary phase at the same time. On the other hand, a capacitive deionisation process, which is characterized by a stacking electrode design with activated carbon sheets as sorption material.
