Energy saving processes of biofuel production applying membrane separation

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

Bioethanol can be produced from, e.g., sugars, starch, and various lignocellulosic materials. Although several separation technologies are technically capable of removing volatile products from fermentation broths, distillation remains the dominant technology. Other alternative separation processes include membrane distillation and vapor permeation. A discussion covers the energy demand of these processes; how to reduce the necessary energy; distillation integrated by pervaporation; comparison to the energy demand of the distillation process; and the influence of membrane properties on energy consumption during the processes. This is an abstract of a paper presented at the CHISA 2012 - 20th International Congress of Chemical and Process Engineering and PRES 2012 - 15th Conference PRES (Prague, Czech Republic 8/25-29/2012).
