Topic Sheet: Membrane Processes in Biorefineries

Topic sheet no 18, February 2023 (click link for download)

The goal of the extended IETS TCP Task XVII on “Membrane processes in biorefineries” was to support biorefineries to optimize their energy efficiency by integrating membrane processes for energy demanding fractionation and separation processes.  Aims and reults are described in this Topic Sheet for the following Subtasks:

  • Separation in biorefineries
  • Integration and optimization of membrane processes in biorefineries
  • Fouling and cleaning of membranes in biorefineries
  • Emerging membrane processes
  • Water and wastewater treatment in biorefineries

This Topic Sheet is based on the final report from IETS TCP Task XVII, Membrane Processes in Biorefineries.  Read the full report.
