Welcome To SMTRG
Sustainable Membrane Technology Research Group
Our research combine organic and inorganic chemistries, nanotechnology and chemical engineering to uncover how structure and surface phenomena of the fabricated membrane are involved under various underlying principal mechanisms toward final separation properties.
Various characterizations tests such as: SEM, TGA, DSC, XRD, EDX, Contact angle, along with performance tests are performed to correlate the fabrication processes and the resultant membrane performance.
Our focus is made on both environmental issues and industrial problems and the topics covered by the research group include, but are not restricted to: industrial and municipal wastewater treatment, water desalination, heavy metal removal, gas separation, natural gas or air dehydration.
Therefore, to achieve these targets the following membrane separation techniques are implemented: RO, FO, MD, UF , MC, MBR, ED, RED, GS.
