Membrane processes for the bioethanol industry: New applications and challenges

Lipnizki, Frank LU orcid (2014) Corn Utilization and Technology Conference
Abstract

„White
biotechnology“- the third and latest wave of biotechnology - is aiming to
replace the well-established C2/C3 chemistry based on oil and gas by biological
processes. The backbone of biotechnology is the conversion by fermentation
which is widely established in the production of antibiotics, enzymes, bioethanol
and organic acids. One of the key concepts related to “white biotechnology” are
so-called bio-refineries. In analogy to petroleum refineries bio-refineries are
aiming for the full utilization of biomass for the simultaneous production of biofuels,
biochemicals, heat and power. Cross-flow membrane processes have established
themselves as low-energy... (More)

aiming for the full utilization of biomass for the simultaneous production of biofuels,
biochemicals, heat and power. Cross-flow membrane processes have established
themselves as low-energy and high selective separation processes in the
downstream processing of fermentation products for recovery and purification since
the beginning of the 1970ies and it can be expected that this role will extend
into the new concept of bio-refineries.
