The project partner Cnano has published an article related to the newly developed technology for plating bath purification. Electroplating produces a large amount of hazardous waste per year, but Creative Nano has developed a sustainable low-cost process for purifying and regenerating these baths and prolonging their operational lifetime, addressing this hazard problem. This method involves capturing excess Ni species on the surface of Fe3O4-based magnetic nanoparticles which are then removed from the plating bath via magnetic filters.
