Separations Consortium Researchers Publish Manuscript Detailing in situ Product Recovery

Separations Consortium Biochemical Team researchers co-authored a recently published article in Green Chemistry detailing in situ product recovery, which minimizes solvent loss and enhances productivity through toxin removal. The authors report a liquid liquid extraction-based system integrated with downstream separations to recover free carboxylic acids, exemplary bioproducts.  The researchers also built a distillation process model and used it to estimate the carbon footprint of recovered acetic acid as 0.36 kg CO2 per kg.  The integrated process generates no waste.
