Theme overview

Separations in chemical engineering involves transforming a mixture of substances into two or more distinct products for various applications.

The Separations research theme aims to develop energy efficient separations across a range of industrial applications using novel material and synthesis, chemical analysis and systems and process design.

By integrating chemical and biochemical processes with solutions to their separations challenges we create tailored and transferrable separations solutions for a multitude of scenarios.

These include membrane-based separations in the gas and liquid phase, CO2 removal from complex effluent streams, and waste refining and trace element removal from complex streams.
