Eligibility:

For single subject courses within Chalmers programmes the same eligibility requirements apply, as to the programme(s) that the course is part of.

Aim

The aim of this advanced course is to deepen and extend knowledge and understanding of separation processes and their key role in eliminating the release of harmful substancies. Some separation methods like distillation will be treated in greater detail than in undergraduate courses and some new separation methods like membrane operations, adsorption and biological methods will be introduced. Multicomponent effects on equilibria and transport will be discussed.

Content

This course deals with some important separation: both physical and biological methods are treated. The areas treated in the course are:
I. Introduction: an outline of different meth-ods: their design, operation and field of use.
II. Multi-component separation, both equilib-rium and kinetics (transport mechanisms) are treated.
III. Multi-component distillation/absorption.
IV. Dynamic simulation
V. Adsorption
VI. Membrane separation.
VII. Biological methods: the main focus are on industrial waste and biological beds. Some attention is also paid to the handling of the sludge produced.
Items I, II, III, and VI and one of the items IV and VII are compulsory.

Organisation

The course includes: lectures, exercises, design project and laboratory work.

Literature

Textbook and/or dedicated texts.

Examination

Written examination. Participation in certain course activities.
