Biomass feedstocks present difficult challenges for separations within biorefineries and bioprocessing units. This reference supports engineers working with bioprocess systems at lab and industrial scale. It provides a comprehensive review of the enabling technologies for recovery of refinery products and handling of waste streams. It also details emerging alternatives that can offer more efficient separation operations within biorenewables processes. The book provides a comprehensive review of the fundamentals of separation alternatives for biorefinery use, for those who need an introduction to the topic. It also includes detailed coverage of industrial applications to enable readers to learn from real world examples. The book is structured with the intention of provided the necessary level of insight into the processing biomass feedstocks for readers to scale up and deploy their own separation applications effectively and efficiently at industrial scale. Separation technology is a critical component of the bioproduct development cycle. As processes for the production of biorenewable products via biological conversions, thermochemical conversions, and hybrid systems mature, so the supporting and enabling technologies for recovering and purifying the produced chemicals that are covered in the book must be understood and applied effectively by practitioners and researchers in the field. Provides extensive coverage of industrial applications, novel developments and future prospects, with content and examples that providing insight into processing biomass feedstocks effectively, with a focus on large scale deployment to achieve effective and efficient separations. Separations are described in detail to allow both experts and non-experts to gain a full appreciation of the progress that has been made in this field. The proposed book would be a valuable resource for anyone working within the biomass/biorenewable products (fuels and chemicals) industries.
