Seminar topic: Membrane Contactors - Modeling and Optimization


Speaker: Daniela Paksiova

Time: Sept. 23, 10:30 a.m. – 11:30 a.m.

Venue: Room 104, H2 Building



In this talk membrane contactors are introduced as a new arising technology for separation. We present the process of carbon dioxide removal where membrane contactors are implemented for the separation. The process itself is modeled as two membrane contactors each with different phase contacting operation to efficiently remove CO2 from the process. The model for one membrane contactor with absorption is fomulated and applied also for CO2 desorption where the phase contacting operation occurs due to different operating temperatures. We also fomulate an optitimization problem where the results are analysed in order to apply the self-optimizing control on the process.


Daniela Paksiova received her master in Automation and Information Engineering from the Slovak University of Technology in Bratislava in 2015, and currently works on a PhD project at the same university under the supervision of Prof. Miroslav Fikar. She also studied at and collaborates with the Norwegian University of Science and Technology in Trondheim, where she worked one year via an exchange program. Daniela Paksiova's research is on optimal control and self-optimizing variables with applications in chemical engineering with a particular focus on membrane processes.
