ALTSEP – An Industry-Driven Technology Roadmap for Separation Alternatives to Distillations
- Type: Archived Webinar
This Webinar provides a behind-the scenes tour of the transformational initiative described on the website www.altsep.org. Rooted in a collaborative partnership between the American Chemical Society Green Chemistry Institute® (ACS GCI) and the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE), this initiative aims to fundamentally change the way we apply separation technologies in chemical manufacturing. Distillation is a well-understood, reliable predictable separation process that works. Recognizing that distillation at the heart of most chemical processes accounts for over 35% of the energy used in U.S. chemical manufacturing, ACS GCI and AIChE have joined forces to work with innovators across the separation process value chain to find ways to jump start the industrial application of less energy-intensive separation processes. The first step in this journey is the creation of an innovation roadmap for advancing the rational design and predictable, widespread, industrial application of sustainable separation processes. The collaboratively developed roadmap will identify and prioritize research, development, and demonstration needs targeted at technology initiatives with the potential to transform the competitiveness and sustainability of the U.S. chemical enterprise. The success of this initiative relies on the collective wisdom and effort of chemists and chemical engineers working together to pave the way for a next generation chemical manufacturing with sustainable separation processes at the core.
