SMART award for spin doctor
(14 March 2003)
Sergei Petrov of Durham Business School has been awarded a £60,000 DTI SMART Award to further his research into solid-liquid separation techniques.
Sergei's research centres on a new concept and design for liquid-solid separation using continuous sedimentary centrifuge. Tests are to be carried out at the Business and Innovation site at Sunderland. Sergei, a senior research assistant, is then hoping to attract partners to further develop the project and market the equipment to industry.
