Graphene oxide membranes have opened a new world of possibilities in separations of multicomponent streams in biorefineries.
The increasing emphasis on a sustainable and decarbonized economy continues to create new and unconventional challenges in multicomponent chemical separations across multiple industrial sectors. For example, biomass-based feedstocks and byproduct streams have a different set of processing challenges than crude oil and other hydrocarbon streams in petroleum refineries and petrochemical plants.
Robust and functional membranes to process multicomponent feedstocks and byproducts have been long desired in the biorefining sector and many other industries. Recent developments are beginning to close this gap, such as the emergence of graphene oxide (GO) membranes for the processing of kraft black liquor...
