Organization profile

Introduction / mission

The chair Membrane Materials and Processes of Eindhoven University of Technology focuses on the multidisciplinary topic of the design and development of polymer membranes to separate molecular mixtures for sustainable processes.

Highlighted phrase

Molecular membrane design to control mass transfer in sustainable process applications

Organisational profile

In our research we aim at tailoring membrane chemistry and morphology to control mass transport in macroscopic applications and combines and integrates material science and process technology. New and modified polymers serve as building blocks in membrane development. Produced membranes will be applied in sustainable process applications or combined with other unit operations, e.g. reaction and separation. Application studies provide direct input and directions for membrane structure optimization and for modification or chemical functionalization of polymer chemistry. Next to fundamental academic research, valorization and application-oriented research in close collaboration with the process and manufacturing industry is carried out.
