    The goalObjective of the course is to introduce students with selection and design of traditional and modern separation processes for multicomponent mixtures separation, to teach them to practically apply their knowledge and integrate their previous knowledge. The main goal is to teach students to correctly choose and integrate units in optimal separation process and to enable them to follow trends in this area.
    The outcomeStudents have learn to apply knowledge gained in this course on real examples of separations in chemical, pharmaceutical, biotechnological, food and environmental industry. They are able to select separation process and equipment for any particular problem.
    Contents of lecturesPhase segregation. Mechanical separation processes (Filtration, Centrifugation), Equilibrium separation processes - phase equilibrium, equipment for gas-liquid separation with dispersion of bubbles and drops (Distillation and Absorption), equipment for Extraction, Leaching, Adsorption, Ionic exchange, Chromatography, Crystallization, Drying. Rate separation processes - membrane separation (Micro and Ultra filtration, Reverse Osmosis, Dialysis), electrical separations (Electrodiayisis, Electrophoresis). Separation process selection - basic principles for correct selection and organization of unit operation and equipment for optimization of separation process,
    Contents of exercisesPractical parti include examles of calculation and selection of diferent mechanical, equilibrium and rate separation processes (Filtration, Centrifugation,Distillation and Absorption, Extraction, Leaching, Adsorption, Ionic exchange, Chromatography, Crystallization, Drying, Micro and Ultra filtration, Reverse Osmosis, DialysisElectrodiayisis, Electrophoresis.
