Lucia Alvarado




University of Guanajuato


Lucia Alvarado has her expertise in Electrochemical Separation Systems which as Electrodialysis and Electrodeionization and green chemistry.  She had contribute in works testing and characterizing new carbon materials and nanomaterials.  The main research is designing treatment systems to remove metallic ions from wastewater and getting pure water. Currently, her adscription is as full professor in Guanajuato University, Mex., Department of Mine Engineering, Metallurgy and Geology. She is active member in the International Society of Electrochemistry and has been reviewer for Elsevier: Electrochimica Acta and Separation and Purification Technology, also reviewer of some projects for the National Council of Science of Technology in Mexico.
