Separations Division (SEP)

Applying chemical engineering to separations technologies.

Chartered: 1990             Dues: $15

The SEP Division provides technical programs for meetings with coverage of a variety of currently used and novel methods of separation. Division members can exchange knowledge of technical publications, computer programs, databases, separation research centers, networks and programs. SEP keeps members informed of future separations meetings and plans exchanges with other groups. In addition, the group encourages chemical engineering educators to place emphasis on the field of separations and on the development of appropriate course materials through research, development, and application.



The Separations Division hosted a special session at the 2015 Annual Meeting in Salt Lake City. In a TED talk-like format, presenters in this rapid fire oral presentation session were challenged to give a 5-minute talk that would inspire their audience and generate interest in their innovative ideas. The presentations may be viewed on the Separations Division's new YouTube Channel.

The 2015 Separations Division Award Winners have been announced!  Please see the attached this pdf for details.
