Scientific Advisory Board

Professor in the dept. of Chemical Engineering at Ben Gurion University and a specialist in crystallization kinetics and separation processes, in membrane technologies focus on scale prevention in reverse osmosis water desalination processes, separation by membrane distillation. Prof. Korin holds Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering from Ben-Gurion University of the Negev (BGU), Israel.

Professor Eli Korin received his Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering from Ben-Gurion University of the Negev (BGU) in1982. He was then awarded a Bantrell Postdoctoral Fellowship from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (1984-1986). During 1986-1990 he worked at the Applied Research Institutes of BGU and joined the Chemical Engineering Department of BGU in 1990. He served as the Chairman of the Department during 2002-2008, and since 2007 he has held the Lady Cohen Podium Chair of Chemical Engineering Processes.The main research areas of Professor Korin are: crystallization kinetics and separation processes. His particular research interests in membrane technologies focus on scale prevention in reverse osmosis water desalination processes, separation by membrane distillation, pervaporation by ion-exchange membranes and conductive membranes for use in fuel cell applications. Professor Korin's research team is also engaged in the development new electrodes based on the incorporation of metals, alloys and metal oxide nanoparticles in porous carbon substrates for fuel cells and water treatment applications.
