Application of membrane processes in chemical industry — feedstock recycling, energy saving

Polimery 2012, No 5, 382


DOI: dx.doi.org/10.14314/polimery.2012.382

Summary

This paper presents the experiences of the Industrial Chemistry Research Institute gained in the research on mebrane technology. The solutions for the industry based on the application of membrane techniques in the production processes were developed in long-standing laboratory and pilot-plant investigations. The study describes the technologies already developed and implemented (Fig. 3) as well as the solutions designed for specific demands of the industry (Figs. 4—6). The benefits of the use of energy-efficient membrane techniques, their high effectiveness (Table 2, 4) and an advantageous impact on the natural environment have been shown. The solutions presented, classified as "green technology”, are economically justified and generate measurable profits for the production plant, where they were implemented.


Key words: membrane process, treatment of industrial effluents, recycling, ethylene glycol, zinc
