Advances in this area focus on the multi-scale modeling and simulation of Pressure Swing Adsorption (PSA) processes for gas separation, the design of hybrid separation processes (e.g. PSA-membrane, distillation-membrane), the detailed modeling, simulation and optimization of reactive distillation, crystallization, PEM Fuel Cells, drying, anaerobic digestion and hydrogen storage processes as well as catalytic reactors.
