Plenary lecture at MELPRO 2020 online conference

Karel Friess gave an online plenary lecture on ULTRAPERMEABLE COMPOSITE MEMBRANES BASED ON CARBON NANOTUBES AND GRAPHENE OXIDE: THE EFFECT OF METAL ION CONTENT ON H2/CO2 SEPARATION PERFORMANCE at the MELPRO 2020 online conference.

Karel was nominated for full professorship

Karel Friess gave his professor’s lecture to the Scientific Council of the University of Chemistry and Technology, Prague, and after a unanimous vote, he will be nominated to the President of the Czech Republic for appointment as a professor.

New research project started in colaboration with US partner

In January 2020, our group started a new project from program INTER-ACTION (LTAUSA19038), New membrane materials for effective separation of acid pollutants from air and modeling of the separation process (Nové membránové materiály pro efektivní separaci kyselých polutantů ze vzduchu a modelování separačního procesu). The topic will be solved in cooperation with research groups of Pavel Izák, Ph.D, DSc. (Institute of Chemical Process Fundamentals, Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic, v.v.i. ) and Associate professor Dr. Jason E.Bara from The University of Alabama, College of Engineering, Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering.  The project period is from 1.1.2020 – 31.12.2022.

About Us

The membrane separation processes (MSPs) belong to modern technologically important separation methods. In comparison with conventional separation techniques, MSPs constitute a low-cost, less energy-consuming and environmentally friendly alternative.
