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.

Malvina Supper and Malte Kaspereit gave a talk at the 34th International Symposium on Preparative and Process Chromatography (PREP 2021, June 7-9, 2021). In this virtual event we presented our most recent results on the isolation of pure single homologs from molar-weight distributed polyethylene gly...

Malte Kaspereit co-authored a paper with Hoang Nguyen (now at Northumbria University, Newcastle/UK) and Tuomo Sainio (LUT - Lappeenranta-Lahti University of Technology, Finland) that covers an experimental-theoretical study on the production of oligosaccharides from natural sources. It is shown that...

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...

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).
