Research Fields

Separation Technology:

Our present studies are to discuss the mechanism of membrane separation during the applications of separation and purification of phospholipid, free fatty acid, and small amount of water content from the crude plant oil as well as the separation of protein from press cake and the separation of water and ethanol.


Biomass Refinery:

The major works are to improve the harvest of energy farm products, the separation of crude plant oils, and the manufacture of biofuels. The cooperation with Bogor Agricultural University and Sichuan Agricultural University on the study of Jatropha oil and other energy farm products, which is supported by the National Federation of Rural Cooperatives, Indonesia (INDUK-KUD). The instruments and standard measurements of the oil properties are established in the laboratory also.


Chemical Dehumidification Air-Conditioning System:

It is a non-compressive absorption or adsorption energy-saving dehumidification air-conditioning system. The present studies are to develop the moisture sorption materials and to improve the heat and mass transfer performance of the key component of the system. From the preparation and modification of sorbents, we conduct the studies of the sol-gel materials and the surface properties.
