(233a) A View of LLE In the Chemical and Bioprocessing Industries

This presentation will provide a
general overview of industrial practices in liquid-liquid extraction with
discussion of both commercial successes (what the technology does well) and
current challenges to commercial implementation (opportunities for future
work).  Well known practices will be
reviewed with respect to current needs and challenges, and emerging industrial developments
will be described.  Important
considerations include available solvent choices (including ?green? solvents), the
type of processing equipment, and the wide variety of processing schemes that
may be employed (including hybrid schemes).
