Loss of Prof. Sourirajan

Dear EMS members,

I regret to inform you of the passing of Prof. Srinivasa Sourirajan on February 20, 2022. Prof. Sourirajan developed, together with Prof. S. Loeb, cellulose acetate membranes for desalination by Reverse Osmosis, which triggered the large-scale industrialization of membrane separation processes.

Kind regards,

Anthony Szymczyk

EMS President
