Professor Takis Paraskeva

Organization: Department of Chemical Engineering, University of Patras
Laboratory: Lab. of Transport Phenomena and Physicochemical Hydrodynamics


Associate Prof. C. A. Paraskeva holds a Diploma and a Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering (University of Patras). His Relative Research Activity is focused on Separation processes and particle technologies, Water and tertiary wastewater treatment with depth filters, treatment of agro-industrial wastewaters with membranes (ultrafiltration, nanofiltration, reverse osmosis) and isolation and purification of organic compounds with high added value, coagulation/flocculation/precipitation methods, Computer- aided simulation of particles flow and deposition within porous media (dynamic behaviour). Consolidation of unconsolidated of poorly consolidated sand formations; stabilization of sandy soils; water proofing of underground constructions; soil protection from water erosion; scale formation.
