Sustainable Separation Processes -- Getting Involved in Roadmap

Discussion created by GCandE Attendee on Jul 15, 2015

The ACS GCI is initiating a collaborative effort with leaders in the chemical and pharmaceutical sector, universities, and professional organizations such as the AIChE (including its Institute for Sustainability, Separations Division, and Computational Molecular Simulation & Engineering Forum) and the Industrial Fluid Properties Simulation Collective to define needs for research, development, and demonstration of technologies enabling industrial application of alternative separation processes.   Read more about it in the attached.

We especially need more input from chemical and pharmaceutical manufacturers on the types of separations (e.g., alkene-alkane) performed via distillation to assure that roadmapping is focused on industrially relevant separation needs.
