About the Project

The research in Chemical Technology is focused on zeolites with a clear environmental profile.  We are in the international research front within zeolite membranes and we also develop zeolite based catalysts and adsorbents. The materials we develop can be used for e.g. separation of carbon dioxide, for synthesis of renewable fuels, and to reduce the energy use in industry.  We cooperate with several multinational companies and we have also started a spin-off company. We have a top-class modern and well-equipped laboratory. We are now looking for a highly qualified PhD student that can strengthen the research group.

Description of research subject

Chemical Technology encompasses the design and analysis of industrial chemical processes and products through experimental and theoretical studies. Of particular importance is the development of materials for chemical engineering applications.
