 : Brief  

  Research Lab for Advanced Separation Processes (ASP), established in 1988, has inimitable team of research experts. The focus of ASP basically is to assist the developing path to upgrade the separation processes of chemical and process industries in Iran. Conducting multiple projects in the fields of extraction and/or purification of chemical products is main research activity and domain of interests within ASP. Most of its skilled researchers who have been graduated in diverse fields of separation branches are now hired in key/basic industrial centers while some others are educating at high ranked international universities.

  ASP is honored to contribute with universities in USA, the Netherland, Finland, Belgium, Switzerland, and Italy to perform some joint projects which has given rise to valuable publications possessed in common. ASP expects to play a role as an academic brand to deliver various consulting services to industrial society of Iran.
