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.

Our group develops novel and powerful technologies for challenging separation and purification problems from chemical, pharmaceutical, and biotechnological applications. Special focus is on new processes based on preparative chromatography, membrane technologies, and gas adsorption. Our research and development work is based on a strong experimental and theoretical background. Please check out our research pages for more information.

We just installed a new powerful online detection system for our chromatography units. The system combines multi angle light scattering (MALS), dynamic light scattering (DLS), and refractive index detectors. It strongly enlarges our capabilities in developing chromatographic separations for size-dis...

The 3rd edition of the book "Preparative Chromatography" has just been published by Wiley. Like for the previous editions, Malte Kaspereit contributed to some chapters. The book is one of the rare comprehensive works in the fast-changing of applied industrial chromatography.

Tuomo Sainio (LUT, Finland) and Malte Kaspereit present in "Chemical Engineering Science" a thorough model-based analysis on reactor-separator processes for the degradation of polymeric and oligomeric compounds to produce products with controlled molar weight distributions (MWD).

Bilal Haider et al. published two papers on the preparation of PDMS-coated asymmetric polyethersulfone mixed-matrix membranes (MMMs) that contain SAPO-34 and activated carbon, respectively. The articles are based on his PhD project on membrane-based gas separation performed in our group. B. Haide...
