Applications with industrial interest
- Gas Storage and separations (H2, CH4, CO2, etc.)
- Membrane technology in gas (treatment and exploitation of Natural Gas and the gas streams of Oil refineries) and liquid phases (steviols separation and purification)
- Effective and sustainable water treatment processes (Nanofiltration, Membrane distillation, RO, Desalination, photocatalytic treatment).
- Smart nanocomposites (e.g., antibacterial, super-hydrophobic, conductive etc.) for specialty paints, coatings and inks.
- Process intensification (3D-printed zeolitic substrates for bioreactors, Methane dehydroaromatisation –MDA- to hydrogen and benzene.)
- Nanoporous drug carriers with controlled release properties
- Minimisation/replacement of CRM (in catalysis)
- Application of renewable/efficient energy resources in industrial applications (Solarization of cement production processes, production of Blue and Green-H2 production from fossil, CO2 conversion to fine chemicals).
