The Institute on Membrane Technology (CNR-ITM) is a structure created by the Italian National Research Council (CNR - Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche) after a process of reorganization for the development, at a national and international level, of membrane science and technology. Prof. Enrico Drioli was appointed as First Director since its founding in 1993. The Institute is currently directed by Dr. Lidietta Giorno.
ITM is headquartered in Rende (CS), in the Campus of the University of Calabria with a subsection in Padua.
The Institute’s mission is the multidisciplinary research, development, technology transfer and high education in membrane science and engineering as well as the application of membrane operations in various fields, including water treatment, gas separation, bio artificial organs, biotechnology, agro-food.
ITM is internationally recognized for its skills in membrane preparation (organic, inorganic, mixed matrix, biohybrid membrane), transport phenomena, molecular membrane separation, catalytic membranes, catalytic membrane reactors, membrane contactors (including membrane emulsification and membrane crystallizer), integrated membrane processes, membrane in regenerative medicine and tissue engineering.
