Smart Separations are changing the world with their technology, improving quality of life through innovation with their COVID secure solutions
Founded in 2013, Dr Hugo Macedo started Smart Separations on his kitchen table at Battersea, London. It grew into his garage and has since expanded into world class facilities at the International Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory (INL) and Surrey Research Park, Guildford. With 25+ employees in the UK, Portugal, Mexico and Spain we are a global team of thinkers, inventors and entrepreneurs all driven to improve quality of life through innovation. We are home to researchers, engineers and industry veterans ranging from the fields of tissue engineering and manufacturing to biotech and material sciences. Smart Separations has created a new generation of antiviral coatings and ceramic membranes. ViraTeq™ technology destroys SARS-CoV-2 on surfaces, helping to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and a customisable ceramic membrane technology that challenges what’s possible with microfiltration.
By working with people from a range of disciplines, we are pursuing an ambitious vision for our two major technology platforms – coatings and ceramic filters. From manufacturing to air purification and from transportation to healthcare, Smart Separations works with partners where antiviral coatings or microfiltration is needed. A true Anglo-Portuguese success story.
