This book presents a comprehensive discussion of separation and purification technologies for use in current and future biorefineries. Topics covered include: Part 1 - Introduction and overview of biomass conversion processes. Part 2 - Equilibrium based separation processes including distillation, liquid-liquid extraction and supercritical fluid extraction. Part 3 - Affinity-based separation technologies including adsorption, ion exchange, simulated moving bed technology and chromatography, and the intensification of these processes. Part 4 - Membrane separation such as microfiltration, ultrafiltration and diafiltration, nanofiltration, membrane pervaporation, membrane distillation, and comparisons of membrane separation technologies. Part 5 - Solid-liquid separations including conventional filtration and solid-liquid extraction. Part 6 - Hybrid reaction-separation systems for process intensification such as membrane bioreactors, extractive fermentation, reactive distillation, and reactive absorption. Part 7 - Case studies of separation and purification technologies in biorefineries For each of the above processes, the fundamental principles and design are briefly discussed, followed by a detailed discussion of applications in the biorefinery, including numerous examples and an outlook for the future. Each chapter also considers the market and industry needs, the industrial challenges, and the economic importance of each technology. Compared to conventional books on separation and purification, this book is unique in its focus on the biorefinery. The book reflects current and future separation approaches and technologies, both fundamental and advanced, and a number of novel separation methods are also included.
