Separation and Purification Technology

Separations research covering both fundamental phenomenon as well as the design and simulation of conventional and new processes is underway.

Research in adsorption, ion exchange and membrane separations is carried out in the Department. Applications in biotechnology, green processes, energy, and resource recovery and recycling are the focus of the work.

Research projects cover a wide range of topics including:

  • Nanofiltration of solvents
  • Applications in fuel purification
  • Ultrafiltration of proteins
  • Nano-structured adsorbents for blood purification
  • Liquid ion exchange membranes
  • Enhanced oil / water separation by membranes
  • Novel microfiltration membranes
