Thematic Lines

Resource Efficiency - Sustainable Processing

A core activity of LAQV is the development of Clean (Bio)Chemical Processes and their application to the efficient use of resources. This Thematic Line brings together the extensive expertise in membranes and adsorption, intensification of processes, use of green solvents, valorisation of biomass, CO2 utilization, design of new smart materials, and in the effective recovery of non-renewable resources.

LAQV is highly committed to innovation fostered by collaborations with industry, which takes advantage of an already existing record of success that results from the combination of local industry projects with the know-how of LAQV in clean production and separation processes and in green solvents. The use of innovative biotechnology platforms and processes represents an added value for these collaborations.
