Webinar #4: Downstream Processing approach
Held on 7 July 2022
Downstream processing approach will be discussed with the focus to separate main reaction product components, namely furfural and 5-HMF, to a commercial chemical specification, to recycle solvent and unreacted sugars and to remove acids and humins as products from side reactions. Special attention will be given to the choice of solvents for extraction and different configurations of separation schemes for bio-components will be presented and discussed by means of modelling.
