High capacity adsorptive/chromatographic fractionation
The objective of this PhD-project is to design adsorptive processes for viscous process flows or process flows containing wide range of particles (from dairy, chicory, tomato industry) including assessment of adsorptive materials. The technology for recovery of complex molecules from large process streams has to maintain the molecules functionality, use water and energy efficiently and be scalable. The focus will be on mass transfer for viscous process streams and design of a chromatographic unit operation. Modeling of mass transfer phenomena and simulation of optimal operation will be an important part of the envisioned work. The results should be applicable for specific cases of the industrial partners.
