Research interests

Our research interests entails both traditional chemical engineering and applied surface chemistry.

Currently one focus area is on developing novel zeolite materials in the form of membranes, adsorbents and catalysts for efficient separations and reactions.  We combine experimental techniques and modelling with the aim to understand how these materials function and how they would operate in industrial scale applications.

We also develop novel environmentally friendly lubricants with the aim of reducing the reliance on fossil resources and pollution to the environment, this work is done in collaboration with colleagues at the Division of Machine elements here at LTU.
