Downstream processing of carboxylic acids from fermentation broths

The objective is to develop and optimise the downstream processes for purifying bio-based carboxylic acids from fermentation broths. Research combines simulations in the Aspen software with experimental studies. Currently, the evaporation process is being investigated. Other purification techniques such as membrane separation, liquid-liquid extraction, distillation, etc. will also in focus after finishing the paper on evaporation.
