Advanced Separation Processes

Welcome to Advanced Separation Processes, the research group of Malte Kaspereit at the Institute for Separation Science and Technology (TVT) in the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering (CBI) of FAU.

We develop novel and advanced technologies for the most challenging separation and purification problems in chemical, pharmaceutical, and biotechnological applications. Special focus is on powerful separation technologies like preparative chromatography, membrane-based processes, gas adsorption, and combinations thereof. In our work, we combine state-of-the-art experimental technqiues, fundamental engineering methodologies, and advanced methods for process modelling and optimization. With our approach, we aim at devising clever and performant processes that contribute to establishing more sustainable process solutions in the mentioned industrial fields. Please check out our research pages for more information.

We are happy to welcome Johannes Wieczorek, M.Sc., in our group! Johannes Wieczorek studied Life Science Engineering at FAU. He is currently finishing his master thesis on Modelling and optimization of chromatographic processes for the isolation of pure PEG homologs under co-supervision of Malvina S...

In a new open-access publication, we present results of our long-lasting investigations on the chromatographic separation of polyethylene glycols (PEGs). Syntheses of polymers like PEGs always yield products with a distribution of molar weights. The broader such distribution, the less defined are th...
