Institute of Membrane Research

Water shortages, climate change and energy transition: separation of substances plays a vital role in these challenges. We help provide solutions to these global problems at the Institute of Membrane Research by developing innovative membranes and membrane processes. This involves a holistic, interdisciplinary approach: it includes developing new materials, processing these materials into membranes as well as constructing pilot plants in which these systems are made ready for implementation. Environmentally friendly manufacturing processes are at the forefront of all of our activities. All steps are accompanied by comprehensive computer simulations. With the help of these digital twins, developing modern membrane systems can be considerably accelerated.
