Pervaporation-based hybrid process : A review of process design, applications and economics

Abstract

Pervaporation is one of the developing membrane technologies that can be used for various industrial applications but for a predefined task, the optimal process design is unlikely to consist solely of pervaporation. Often the optimised solution becomes a hybrid process combining pervaporation with one or more other separation technologies. A distinction will be made between hybrid and integrated processes. Hybrid processes are important and consequently need to be considered in process design. This paper focuses on pervaporation-based hybrid processes that have been realised on an industrial scale. Both present and future prospects of applying these process combinations will be reviewed. The emphasis of this paper is, therefore, on... (More)

Pervaporation is one of the developing membrane technologies that can be used for various industrial applications but for a predefined task, the optimal process design is unlikely to consist solely of pervaporation. Often the optimised solution becomes a hybrid process combining pervaporation with one or more other separation technologies. A distinction will be made between hybrid and integrated processes. Hybrid processes are important and consequently need to be considered in process design. This paper focuses on pervaporation-based hybrid processes that have been realised on an industrial scale. Both present and future prospects of applying these process combinations will be reviewed. The emphasis of this paper is, therefore, on pervaporation combined with distillation and with chemical reactors. The economic potential of these hybrid processes is evaluated, for various applications, by cost comparisons between the pervaporation-based hybrid processes and alternative separation processes. Pervaporation-based processes for waste water treatment and biotechnology applications involve other types of pervaporation based hybrid processes and have been excluded from this review.
