Malte Kaspereit is head of the research group Advanced Separation Processes, which is located at the Institute for Separation Science & Technology (Lehrstuhl für Thermische Verfahrenstechnik, TVT). The institute is part of the Department for Chemical and Biological Engineering (CBI) in the Faculty of Engineering (Technische Fakultät) at Friedrich Alexander University Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU), Germany.

Malte Kaspereit’s research is devoted to the development of efficient process concepts for current challenging separation problems for the prodcution of bulk and fine chemicals, pharmaceuticals, and biological products. Particular focus is on preparative chromatography, membrane-based separation processes, gas adsorption, as well as hybrid and reactive separations. The work is based on a strong experimental and theoretical background. Please check out our research pages for more details.

For his research, Malte Kaspereit received several awards. Among them is the Young lecturer’s award (Hochschullehrer-Nachwuchspreis) of Dechema, and the Award for Technology and Science (Technikwissenschaftlicher Preis) of the Berlin-Brandenburg
Academy of Sciences and Humanities
(Berlin-Brandenburgische Akademie der Wissenschaften).


Curriculum vitae

Malte Kaspereit studied Process Engineering (Verfahrenstechnik) an the Technical University of Clausthal, Germany. After a six-month research visit at the College of Engineering at Purdue University (W Lafayette/IN, USA) he joined the Max Planck Institute for Dynamics of Complex Technical Systems (MPI) in Magdeburg, Germany. He obtained his PhD “with honors” from Otto von Guericke University in Magdeburg under supervision of Andreas Seidel-Morgenstern. After several years as PostDoc at MPI, he accepted the offered Professorship for Separation Science & Technology at FAU.
