AMPM Center is committed to translating research to industry in Saudi Arabia. One way we do this is by advanced education of industry staff who take their learning and apply it in their companies to create innovation and economic benefit. An outstanding example is our most recent PhD graduate, Saudi national Nasser Alaslai. Saudi Aramco supported him, after 10 years' work experience, to join Advanced Membranes and Porous Materials (AMPM) Center to undertake graduate research into an important industry problem: removal of carbon dioxide (CO2) from natural gas which comes out of the ground as a mixture of valuable methane with nitrogen, carbon dioxide, water, hydrogen sulphide and other contaminants. Now Nasser will return to Saudi Aramco and implement what he has learned and discovered himself in research.
