Integration of Membrane Separation Technologies Within Biorefining Book Review:

Production of renewable liquid transportation fuels and chemicals from abundant biomass sources is an on-going challenge to reduce the consumption of limited petroleum feedstocks. Membrane separations can be integrated into a biorefinery to reduce water and energy consumption as well as increase process efficiencies. Unfortunately, current membrane materials suffer from severe fouling, which limits their applicability. Four areas of potential membrane integration into a lignocellulosic biorefinery were investigated, along with a corn ethanol separation, using analytical characterizations along with fouling models to correlate membrane properties with performance metrics. The performance and fouling analysis within each of these applications allowed analysis of the feasibility of integration and provided a framework for optimal membrane selection at each separation location. Commercially available membranes were evaluated, followed by the creation of UV grafted modified membranes to demonstrate rational design of tailored properties specifically for membrane biorefinery applications for improved performance and lower cost. This research aids in the understanding of membrane fouling, membrane material development, and the use and design of membranes in complex systems such as lignocellulosic biorefining. The results from this research allow for rational membrane design, tailored specifically to a process stream, to improve process efficiencies in a wide range of applications. Specifically within the biorefining industry, improvements made to membrane separations could have dramatic effects on the economics of producing renewable fuels and chemicals from sustainable biomass resources. Reducing costs to compete with petroleum-derived products will open a new market to consumers for these products without increasing prices. Lignin and lignin degradation products are unique compounds present in biomass process streams that are extremely detrimental to commercial membrane products. Reducing lignin in membrane processing feeds and/or developing membrane surfaces with high hydrophilicity has been shown to improve most membrane separation applications. In addition, membrane surface roughness was a key characteristic that correlated to performance. However, in some cases elevated surface roughness enhanced sustained flux (e.g., solid-liquid separation applications), while in other cases (e.g., protein separations), higher surface roughness was correlated with reduced performance. Overall, surface roughness, pore size, surface chemistry and operating conditions are important considerations for designing improved biorefinery applications separations.

Efficient Membrane Separation Operations for Biorefining Book Review:

Results from this research describe membrane fouling behavior, type of foulants and the most appropriate membrane modifications needed to process the complex lignocellulosic slurries. For instance, lignin (one the major components of the pinewood feedstock), was found to be a major cause of biofouling, both as a suspended solid and soluble derivatives. The results obtained have been used to tailor the properties of membranes to improve the overall biorefinery process efficiencies. In addition to discoveries to improve fouling behavior, methods have been described that allow for the integration of membranes to capture high value co-products formed during the processing of lignocellulosic biomass while improving other operations simultaneously. For example, fermentation inhibitory compounds such as acetic acid, HMF, and furfural are value added chemicals which can be sold to maximize biorefinery profit. It was found that with the appropriate selection of nanofiltration membrane the separation of sugars from inhibitory compounds could be achieved. Overall, results indicate that membranes are a viable technology and have many opportunities to improve biorefinery operations. Integration of membranes will improve the prospects of efficiently producing fuels and chemicals from renewable feedstocks.
