Membrane Separation Group

Fields of research:

  • Data processing using activity coefficient models and equations of state
  • Prediction of phase behaviour by means of models based on group contribution methods
  • Mass transport in polymeric membranes, mutual influence of permeating substances
  • Membrane separation of CH4 and CO2 mixtures
  • Separation of gases by ionic liquids membranes
  • Gas transport in asymmetric porous membranes
  • Pervaporation - dehydration of alcohols, separation of azeotropic mixture, etc.
  • Separation of volatile organic compound from  air 
  • Pertraction – separation of enantiomers
  • Evaluation of transport properties such as permeability, activation energy of permeation and selectivity of process
  • Flu Gas Purification by Polymeric Membranes

Applied research:

  • Separation of unwanted components from raw biogas
  • Separation of volatile organic compound from air
  • Separation of racemic mixtures
