Esra Eray, product manager of membranes at LiqTech International Inc, has been awarded the 2022 DAKS PhD Prize by the Danish Ceramic Society for her PhD thesis entitled “Development of Silicon Carbide Membranes for Efficient Treatment of Wastewater Streams”.

The DAKS PhD prize is awarded every year by the Danish Ceramic Society (Dansk Keramisk Selskab (DAKS)) to the best PhD thesis on ceramics or glass from a Danish university. Nominations are evaluated by the industry members of the DAKS board with the prize being awarded at a DAKS meeting.

DAKS is a network of individuals, companies and research institutions that deal with ceramic materials and processes. The society mainly deals with technical ceramics such as glasses, electro-ceramics, fuel cells, ceramic superconductors and catalysts. The society holds meetings once or twice a year to strengthen communication and collaboration between Danish industry and research.

Malte Eriksen, VP of R&D and Engineering at LiqTech, added: “We extend our sincerest congratulations to Esra Eray on this achievement. We are honored to have her on our team and excited to see where her research will take us in the future.”
