JD- Scientist-Materials Development

Log 9 Materials is using its core competence in Graphene nanotechnology to develop advanced membrane technologies from nano-materials.

Our graphene based membrane solve the challenges at an industrial scale for the removal of various pollutants from these polluted water in industries.

Filtration division of Log 9 Materials is developing novel membrane materials and membrane processes for sustainable chemical separations without the use of heat. Log 9 Materials is disrupting the energy-intensive chemical separation processes through the introduction of novel chemical-resistant nanofiltration membranes. Log 9’s sustainable process facilitates less energy consumption by substantially reducing global energy use, emissions, and pollution. We are currently working on to fabricate robust nanofiltration membranes for Oil/Water separation and design membrane systems for petrochemical and fine-chemical industries.

In this endeavour, we are building a team of Engineers and Technocrats to make India energy Independent.

Log 9 team stands for Innovation, Intellect, Integrity, Initiative and Individual Growth. Hence, we are looking for people who identify with the same set of values.

Unique chance to work at the cutting edge of technology in India, building solutions to solve global energy challenges.
