Membrane Fouling and Control
Hydrogen Economy



Research Fields

Membrane Separation:

The major research fundamentals focus on the control of protein adsorption behavior form the chemical properties and physical structures of membrane surface. We currently concentrate on the development of low-fouling membranes of protein separation.

Fouling Layer on Membrane:

This project aims at developing scheme to probe the 3D distributions of organic foulants in the fouling layer on membrane. Multiple staining technique together with specific primers hybridization provides chance to visualize how fouling layer is packed on membrane.

Aerobic Granule-Membrane Bioreactor:

This project is to develop a new process combining the aerobic granules process and membrane bioreactor process, in order to produce high quality effluent without threat of membrane fouling.


Hydrogen Economy:

This project is to develop an economy-wide, general equilibrium model for evaluating impacts brought by transition from carbon to hydrogen economy.Foulant on the MBR membrane are also identified by the above molecular biotechnologies.

Potential Applications of Research

Enhanced Membrane Control Technique

Efficient Water Reclamation from Wastewater

Policy of Hydrogen Energy Applications and Economy Development
