Separation science (UT3)

Separation science (UT3)Code de l'UE : HMCH147


The goal is to provide fundamentals in separation science.

Course content:
- Role of separation science in industry
- Physico-chemical processes involved in separation
- Separating agents and associated technologies
- Efficiency and capacity of separation processes
- Elements for process selection.


- To know general concepts about separation processes and their role in industry
- To be able to associate a separating agent to a separation technology
- To know the scientific fundaments of separation processes
- To be able to estimate the efficiency and the capacity of a separation process (the modelling aspects of the processes will be given in semester 2 in the course Separation Technology)
- To know simple criteria to choose a separation processes.
