Separation Technology


Relevant projects could involve any separation technology that enables and/or enhances the efficiency of separations in existing or new process technologies with a focus on enhanced energy efficiency and reduced capital requirements. Application areas include (but are not limited to) separations for multi-component and multiphase solid, liquid, and gas streams; separation technologies in both inorganic and organic chemical applications; novel purification processes; materials that permit effective sensor designs based on separations; recycle and recovery of higher value materials from waste; Novel separation techniques and media as disruptive improvements to current established separation technologies are encouraged, including (but not limited to) organic/inorganic membranes,porous media, structured materials and synthetic materials for drinking water and wastewater treatment; food, medical, pharmaceutical, chemicals and biochemical processes.
