Abstract

Abstract In-situ product recovery can improve the performance of a butanol fermentation. Five technologies for in-situ product recovery have been compared on the basis of design parameters and energy efficiency. These five technologies are: stripping, adsorption, liquid—liquid extraction, pervaporation and membrane solvent extraction. From these, pervaporation and liquid—liquid extraction are considered to have the greatest potentials.
