Final Report: Membrane Processes in Biorefineries

The goal of the extensions of  Task XVII on “Membrane processes in biorefineries” was to build upon the initial phase of the Task by extending the learnings from the lignocellulosic biorefineries and other types of biorefineries plus extending to additional subtasks.

To achieve this a group of 25 academic and industrial partners from eight IETS countries was formed working on six subtasks covering separations in biorefineries (Subtask A), integration and optimization of membrane processes in biorefineries (Subtask B), fouling and cleaning of membranes in biorefineries (Subtask C), pre-treatment of biomass process streams before membrane separation (Subtask D), emerging membrane processes (Subtask E) and water and wastewater treatment in biorefineries (subtask F).
