In the field of Chemical Engineering – separation process is the transfer of any mass that converts the substance mixture into distinctive product mixtures. “In some cases, a separation may fully divide the mixture into its pure constituents. Separation Techniques are carried out based on differences in chemical properties, or physical properties such as size, shape, mass, density, or chemical affinity, between the constituents of a mixture, and are often classified according to the particular differences they use to achieve separation. . The Separation Process in the chemical engineering includes Adsorption, Capillary electrophoresis, Centrifugation and cyclonic separation, Crystallization, Decantation, Distillation, Drying, Electrostatic Separation, Elutriation, Evaporation, Extraction, Field flow Fractionation, Magnetic separation, Precipitation, Recrystallization

More than 70% of chemical analysis all over the world is done using Chromatography. It is a physical technique applied from basic organic chemistry to Forensic sciences. Some of the common applications include detection of cocaine in urine, alcohol in blood, PCB’s in fish, lead in water, etc. Chromatography is of various types-displacement chromatography, Paper chromatography, Thin layer chromatography, supercritical chromatography, expanded bed adsorption chromatography, liquid chromatography, Gas chromatography, Column fluid chromatography in various combinations.

Liquid-liquid extraction is one of the mostly employed and useful techniques in pharmaceutical sample preparation. This is because of number of characteristics, including rapid method development, simplicity, and reasonable selectivity. Another one is Solid phase extraction is a technique designed for rapid, selective sample preparation and purification prior to chromatographic analysis. The process of Crystallization is also a chemical solid–liquid separation technique, in which mass transfer of a solute from liquid solution to a pure solid crystalline phase occurs. In chemical engineering the process of crystallization occurs in a crystallizer. Therefore, Crystallization is an aspect of precipitation, obtained by the variation of solubility conditions of solute in solvent, as compared to precipitation due to chemical reaction.

It is possible to operate MBR processes at higher mixed liquor suspended solids (MLSS) concentrations compared to conventional settlement separation systems, thus reducing the reactor volume to achieve the same loading rate.

Track 12: Water desalination

Desalination is a process that extracts mineral components from saline water. More generally, desalination refers to the removal of salts and minerals from a target substance, as in soil desalination, which is an issue for agriculture. Seawater desalination is an increasingly key solution for the scarcity of water.
Saltwater is desalinated to produce water suitable for human consumption or irrigation. One by-product of desalination is salt. Most of the modern interest in desalination is focused on cost-effective provision of fresh water for human use. Along with recycled wastewater, it is one of the few rainfall-independent water sources. Currently, approximately 1% of the world's population is dependent on desalinated water to meet daily needs, but the UN expects that 14% of the world's population will encounter water scarcity by 2025.

Analytical chemistry is that the study of the separation, identification, quality control and quality assurance of the chemical parts of natural and artificial materials. Analytical chemistry is overwhelmed by instrumental examination. There are such huge numbers of various sorts of instruments today that it can appear like a confounding cluster of acronyms as opposed to a brought together field of study. Numerous investigative physicists concentrate on a solitary sort of instrument. Scholastics have a tendency to either concentrate on new applications and revelations or on new strategies for examination. The revelation of a compound present in blood that builds the danger of tumour would be a disclosure that an investigative scientific expert may be engaged with. A push to build up another strategy may include the utilization of a tuneable laser to expand the specificity and affectability of a spectrometric technique.
