In this group physico-chemical and chemical thermodynamic principles, proces technology and methods of analytical chemistry are used in studies related to environmental problems. Research topics are: a. Physico-chemical treatment of process water, drinking water and wastewater and of solvent streams by the use of membrane processes. Currently mainly nanofiltration and pervaporation are studied (also in hybrid processes e.g. with ...
Lab4U performs research on the development of new technologies and their implementation in existing (bio) chemical processes aiming a transformation from batch to flow. The research group focuses on characterization, development and control of chemical reactors and separation units. Keywords include ultrasound and alternative energy, process intensification, green chemicals, milli-flow reactors, separation processes and inline process ...

Microreactortechnology Vrije Universiteit Brussel
On the one hand, the "microreactors" theme for IW: CH is perfect in the context of their spearheading around process intensification that was just planned. Building on the expertise in the simulation and optimization of separation processes on packed columns, on 1/01/2010, an academic project will begin on the development and manufacture of microfluidic chips for liquid-liquid extraction. On the other hand, at CHIS, the theme was recently ...
Centre for Membrane Separations, Adsorption, Catalysis, and Spectroscopy for Sustainable Solutions KU Leuven
cMACS forms an interdisciplinary and international team that pioneers research in catalysis, energy, spectroscopy and separations. A molecular understanding of physical and chemical phenomena during synthesis and application of catalysts, sorbents and membranes is central to allow molecular and structural design of novel materials and directed engineering of applications. The study of porous materials, membranes, films and their interfaces ...
