Proceedings of the Third International Conference on Separation Technology 2020 (ICoST 2020)

Centre of Lipids Engineering & Applied Research (CLEAR) in Universiti Teknologi Malaysia Johor Bahru is proud to host the 3rd International Conference on Separation Technology (ICoST). ICoST 2020 offers a platform for researchers, scientists, and engineers from various universities and research institutions, locally and overseas to gather and interact on the specialized areas in separation technologies and interrelated issues, each calling for disciplinary approaches and novel ideas to unlock the path to sustainable solutions.

ICoST 2020 covers multidisciplinary perspectives on separation research and aims to promote scientific information interchange among scientists, academics, students, and practitioners. Topics include, but are not limited to environmental engineering, extraction technology, advanced separation technology, biotechnology, absorption & adsorption technology, wastewater treatment and other separation technologies, in line with the theme, ‘Synergizing Sustainable Technology Towards Future Prospective.’ In 2020, ICoST sets a new history to hold its very first virtual scientific meeting due to the global Coronavirus pandemic. This gives all distinguished guests and participants the flexibility to attend the event from the comfort of their home or office.

All papers received were peer-reviewed, and 40 contributions have been selected and recommended to be published in Advanced in Engineering Research. We hope that authors and readers find this volume informative and useful. Lastly, we would like to extend our appreciation to the organizing committee for their hard work in making this momentous international meeting a success.
