Separations

matric_363Chemical processes are only successful if the products can be separated and purified to meet the required specifications. MATRIC personnel have an exceptionally deep background in separations technology, covering a wide range of applications. These activities have spanned the range from laboratory studies to large-scale chemical plant applications.

Key personnel have worked on projects including:

  • Separation of liquids and solids from mixtures obtained by processing of biomass
  • Dewatering of sludges and suspended particulates
  • Multiple techniques for filtration and centrifugation
  • Crystallization of organic products from water and organic solvents
  • Liquid-liquid extraction processes
  • Controlled precipitation of fine particles during a process
  • Design of crystallizers for batch and continuous operations
  • Distillation technology, including reactive distillation
  • Membrane separations and pervaporation
  • Adsorption and absorption processes
