Technology Research Roadmapping: The Case Study of Membrane Technology in Iranian Petrochemical Industry

Naser Bagheri Moghaddam, Mahdi Sahafzadeh


Science and technology roadmaps are used in industry, government, and academia to portray the structural relationships among science, technology, and applications. In this paper, through technology strategic planning and based on the research and development priorities of membrane technology in Iranian petrochemical industry, we proposed the combined process and component research roadmap of this technology in the case study of Iranian petrochemical industry. In this roadmap, the path of three highlighted membrane technology development was drawn. This roadmap was aligned with the next six year vision of the industry and consist the main materials, types and modules of prior membrane technologies. Keywords: Technology Research Roadmap; R&D Priority Setting; Membrane Technology


Technology Research Roadmap; R&D Priority Setting; Membrane Technology
