Biobased chemistry utilizes natural processes (such as fermentation) rather than crude oil to make chemical building blocks. In bioreactors where microorganisms produce organic compounds, pervaporation membranes selectively remove reaction products continuously, thereby increasing the process yield. Organic compounds as well as water can be selectively removed, for example from fermentation broths.
Typical pervaporation applications are:
- Use in bioreactors for in-situ selective product recovery
- Winning of organics from fermentation or algae based processes (e.g. ABE, 1-butanol)
