Application of membrane technology for the development of sustainable biotechnology processes

Chapter


Abstract


  • The scope of application of membranes in biotechnology has widened significantly in the

    recent years. Although many of the membrane options are yet to achieve wide industrial

    applications, they show tremendous potential for the transformation and synthesis of valueadded

    products, energy production, therapeutic applications and environmental remediation.

    This chapter provides an overview of membrane applications in selected established and

    emerging biotechnology processes. Approaches to overcoming the technology bottlenecks

    that impede the scale-up of such systems have been discussed in this chapter.
