Do separations play a significant role in your operational and capital costs? Find out how to improve separation energy consumption.  

In 60 minutes, you’ll consider how roughly half or more of the world’s energy supply is consumed by separations that either isolate products for sale or recycle materials for reprocessing and further reaction.  This webinar focuses on the method of distillation which dominates the separations landscape. You’ll investigate the opportunities for energy reduction in this area as well as hurdles that exist when implementing these opportunities on a broad scale. You’ll gain real-world insight through success stories shared and look at ideas on the horizon for energy conservation in the separations area.   

Take a look at your agenda:

  • Economic drivers for reducing separations energy
  • Methods of energy conservation separation
  • Distillation intensification opportunities
  • What’s on the horizon: What new technologies or techniques are on the horizon that can alter the landscape?
