Electrochemistry & Corrosion Lab

INSTITUT TEKNOLOGI SEPULUH NOPEMBER

DEPARTMENT OF CHEMICAL ENGINEERING

ELECTROCHEMISTRY & CORROSION

The field of chemical engineering has broadened from the traditional one, that typically based on petroleum and petrochemical industries, to be an interdisciplinary area. We aim to advance chemical engineering education through research on processing natural resources for advanced materials by addressing issues on energy, biomedical, environmental and agriculture.

FASCINATING NANOMATERIALS AND EXCITING RESEARCH AREAS

Our research group exploits the utilization of solid wastes and natural resources by processing them to become advanced functional nanomaterials; their unusual structural and surface properties for various applications. Research in our group centers around nanoparticles and nanostructure porous materials since these offer unprecedented level of flexibility and control. The versatility of their composition and structure allows envisioning new applications in energy, environmental, biomedical and agricultural. Read more

STUDENT OPPORTUNITIES!

Are you interested in obtaining master or doctoral degree in chemical engineering by doing your project in our group? We accept students from industries for master/doctor with a flexibilty doing their project on site. Please contact us with your curriculum vitae.

LIGHTWEIGHT CELLULOSE AEROGEL MADE OF COIR FIBERS

Cellulose aerogel has excellent properties due to its very high surface area and large pore volume. We developed a process to manufacture such materials from coir fiber and other abundant natural biomass. The aerogel have many potential applications such as adsorbent for dyes and absorbent for oil spill. It may be carbonized to produce carbon aerogel having extraordinary properties suitable for many applications. Read more

HYDROPHOBIC SILICA AEROGEL MADE OF BAGASSE ASH

Starting from bagasse ash, solid waste remaining after combusting bagasse to produce energy in sugar mill, silica aerogel and other mesoporous silica have been successfully synthesize under ambient pressure. The porous silicas have many potential applications such as for dessicant, slow-released fertilizer, catalyst host, heat insulation, etc. Read more

SPHERICAL & CUBIC MAGNETITE NANOPARTICLES

Magnetite (Fe3O4) nanoparticles have many potential applications for environment, biomedical, and energy storage and conversion. We proposed been a simple electrooxidation of iron in water. No chemicals other than water are used. Alternating monopolar configuration has been demonstrated to be able to produce high-throughput production of the nanoparticles. The electrochemical reactor is easy to scale-up for mass production. Read more

Neraca massa dan panas sebagai alat diagnosa malfungsi proses pabrik kimia

Oleh: Heru Setyawan Mungkin banyak yang heran dengan judul di atas. Benarkah mengerjakan neraca massa dan panas, yang merupakan pelajaran dasar teknik kimia, bisa dipakai untuk mendiagnosa terjadinya malfungsi dalam suatu proses pabrik kimia. Kedengarannya seperti mengada-ada saja. Seperi dokter saja, melakukan diagnosa. Neraca massa dan panas, kalau dalam kurikulum teknik kimia biasanya diajarkan dalam […]

Teknologi elektrolisa untuk memproduksi sodium khlorat

Oleh: Heru Setyawan Dalam halaman Technology Profile, majalah Chemical Engineering edisi Oktober 2020 menurunkan tulisan satu halaman yang merupakan rangkuman uraian proses produksi sodium khlorat (NaClO3), sebuah agen pemucat. Sodium khlorat adalah garam anorganik dengan kristal tak berwarna dan rasa asin/dingin. Meskipun tidak dapat terbakar, sodium khlorat terurai dengan melepaskan oksigen, yang meningkatkan pembakaran senyawa […]

Evaluasi kinerja sistem pengukur gas fiskal dengan computational fluid dynamics

Oleh: Heru Setyawan Suatu saat distribusi aliran tidak seragam diketahui pada dua sistem pengukur gas fiskal di perusahaan gas Ex-Total E&P Indonesie di daerah Delta Mahakam, Kalimantan Timur. Pada saat itu Total E&P Indonesie adalah penghasil gas melalui 5 lapangan gas di daerah Delta Mahakam, yaitu di Handil, Bekapai, Tambora, Tunu dan Peciko. Sistem pengukur […]

Insyiah Meida Luktyansyah (PT Pupuk Kalimantan Timur)

Pak Heru adalah “Bintang” Lab Elkimkor dan sungguh amat sangat beruntung jalan hidup saya pernah bersinggungan dengan Beliau. Angkatan kami memanggil Beliau Papi Heru. Panggilan dengan citarasa hangat, manja, dan modern. Secara pribadi saya menilai Beliau adalah pribadi yang hangat mengayomi sekaligus cerdas menyentil :D. Sungguh begitu banyak kenangan manis terukir di Elkimkor Lantai 3 & 4. Termasuk saat saya memecahkan glass BET yang….Beliau pun hanya bersabar tersenyum, padahal di pikiran saya sudah berkecamuk “Wah kagak lulus nih” wkwk..Ampun Bapak.. Saya rasa semua angkatan sepakat bahwa Beliau, Prof. Heru, sungguh tidak hanya memberikan pengarahan, pengajaran, dan fasilitas untuk menyelesaikan tugas akhir tapi juga memberi ruang (Elkimkor) agar kita semua dapat membangun hubungan yang kita sebut sebagai “Keluarga”.
