Research Facilities

Since 2014 a lot of new equipment has been procured and built to facilitate state-of-the art membrane research. This involves membrane characterization from very small to pilot scale. The facilities compliment vast characterization tools available at KIT in general. The new Membrane Technology laboratories have been used since February 2019.
