Welcome to the Membrane Science & Technology Group

Membrane Technology Group European Membrane Institute

All membrane research performed at the University of Twente is clustered in the Membrane Alliance Twente. Continue directly to the Membrane Science & Technology Group or explore the other groups below:

Group navigator

The Membrane Technology Group of the University of Twente focuses on the multi-disciplinary topic of membrane science and technology to control mass transfer through interfaces. All membrane research performed is clustered in two different entities:

  1. Membrane Science & Technology, which focuses on the design, development and application of polymer membranes for Energy, Water and Sustainable Processes (Prof. Dr. Kitty Nijmeijer).
  2. European Membrane Institute Twente, which performs confidential contract research directly with the industry. It acts as the interface between the academic research and the industrial needs (Dr. Zandrie Borneman).
