As a Flemish, internationally recognized research centre, VITO aims to accelerate the transition to a sustainable world. The MESCH team at VITO develops industrially viable membrane processes for the intensification of chemical processes in industry.
Membranes and membrane processes are of great value in the transition towards a more sustainable chemical industry, because of their broad application area, their low energy consumption, and their usefulness in continuous chemical processes at every scale. Our approach allows companies to de-risk their developments by demonstration of relevant and economically viable membrane-based separation processes.
Our recently developed technology consists of designing novel hybrid materials derived from the union of polymer and ceramic substances bearing well-designed and useful functionalities, for use as smart, target-oriented membranes in industrially relevant liquid-based separations. The resulting hybrid membranes combine the best of two worlds: the superior overall properties of ceramics and the tunable surface properties offered by the polymer layer. With this goal in mind, we are currently aiming to bring this technology to maturity in collaboration with recent VITO spin-off membrane company.
To strengthen our team of researchers and technicians (now about 20 people) we are looking for a new colleague for the execution of projects on hybrid membrane development in close collaboration with a Flemish start-up company.
For this we opened a post-doc position for a 1-year contract, potentially extendable to 2 years.
