Featured Content: Front cover for CEJ

Check out our new article on scavenging organic micropollutants from water with nanofibrousE-WEB-Goal-14 hypercrosslinked cyclodextrin membranes solely derived from green resources. The article was selected for the front cover of the Chemical Engineering Journal published by Elsevier. Congratulations to Fuat Topuz, the first author of the article, for putting this work together in a successful interdisciplinary collaboration with Tibor Holtzl.

Featured Content: Invited talk at ACS-GC&E

Join us at the 25th Annual Green Chemistry & Engineering Conference, 14-18 June 2021. The invited talk on ‘Energy-efficient solvent recycling via nanofiltration in continuous flow’ will cover our latest research on the use of organic solvent nanofiltration (OSN) for in-situ recycling of solvents. Examples for the coupling of OSN with continuous extraction and continuous catalytic reactions will be presented.


Featured Content: Congratulations to Hai Anh and Levente for passing their PhD examination!

Congratulations to Hai Anh Le Phuong and Levente Cseri for passing their PhD examination at The University of Manchester. It was a pleasure to supervise their PhD research over the past years. They worked hard and published many excellent articles on membrane materials and processes. Hai Anh defended her thesis on the 29th of April, and the external examiner was Prof. Xing Yang from KULeuven. Levente had his viva on the 30th of April, and the external examiner was Prof. ‪Nikos Hadjichristidis from KAUST. Hai Anh has minor corrections to do, while Levente has no corrections… amazing job! Your hard work and dedication have paid off, I am very proud of you! Wishing you all the best as you move toward the next chapter life brings your way.

Featured Content: Book Release

Our textbook titled Sustainable Process Engineering has recently been published. The inspiration for this book arose from my university teachings on sustainability and green engineering. In this textbook, you will find an engaging and interesting reference guide on sustainability that will provide you with a solid foundation in this exciting field of science. I am indebted to all my students and colleagues, and particularly grateful to Diana Gulyas Oldal, Gergo Ignacz and Martin Gede, who have made a tremendous effort in both the logistics and writing of this book; many thanks go to them for all their hard work.

You can purchase the book directly from the publisher, or from Amazon.
