The research interests of Dr Bazinet aim the study of electrodialytic phenomena and their impacts on bio-food compounds in order to design, optimize and develop new eco-efficient technics and lees energy consuming electrochemical technologies. He collaborated to research projects on soybean 11S and 7S fractions separation as well as milk casein and whey proteins electroseparation. He also worked on electroreduction to decrease whey protein allergenecity and to increase the shelf-life of omega-3 enriched milk and fruit base cocktails. Amongst other technologies, he recently developed and patented a new technology called electrodialysis with filtration membrane (EDFM). This technology allows the separation of molecules according to their charges (electrical field) and their molecular weights (filtration membrane cut-off). This technology has already demonstrated a high selectivity for the separation of molecules of very different natures such as tobacco polyphenols, anthocyanins, chitosan oligomers and bioactive peptides from hydrolysates. Another research interest is the study of membrane fouling nature and formation during electromembrane processes.
