Chemical technology

We develop membranes, adsorbents and catalysts to reduce energy use in the chemical industry and enable competitive production from renewable raw materials.

We also work with basic materials studies and process development to improve the quality of chemical products. We strongly contribute to The Master Programme in Sustainable Process Engineering..
The subject has since 1994 produced 20 doctoral dissertations and now consists of about 10 senior researchers and as many graduate students.
