The research work of professors in the department of Chemical Engineering
by the facilities developed by each research group.
CAPPA-D (Centre for
Advanced Polymer Processing Analysis and Design)
CAPPA-D is involved in the formulation, conversion and characterization
mathematical modeling of single and twin screw extrusion, coextrusion,
rotational molding, film blowing, reactive extrusion, mixing and coating.
There are strong
groups working in the areas of environmental engineering, biomedical studies,
making, turbulence modelling and experimentation, separations, process
and applied mathematics. The research summaries of the individual faculty
point out the many interactions, breadth and depth of the research activity
department. trusion, thermoforming, rotational molding, film blowing,
mixing and coating.
MACC (McMaster Control
MACC promotes and advances process control by bringing together researchers
practitioners for the investigation and application of leading-edge control
for Pulp and Paper Research
A world-class framework for scientists with strengths in colloid and surface
polymer synthesis and characterization, modelling and transport phenomena
together on strategic problems.
Institute for Polymer Production Technology)
MIPPT developments advanced polymer manufacturing processes using pilot-scale
reactors and comprehensive deterministic models of the polymerization
optimization and control. The emphasis is on the production of specialty
water - soluble co and terpolymers with applications in coatings, adhesives,
and water treatment.
The following Centres have Chemical Engineering faculty involvement.
Membrane Research Group (Chemistry)
McMaster Membrane Research Group investigates the preparation, characterization,
evaluation and modelling of a wide range of membranes and membrane separation
from the design and manufacture of new types of synthetic membranes through
in a variety of applications to biological membranes and the transport
of materials through
