20150210 SolSep B.V. – Mr. Petrus Cuperus & MACT - Mr. Ton Franken - “Technoproject results: Recovery of Hexane/Acetone from Hexane/Acetone Oil extraction liquids in edible oil industry”

Membrane & Module Manufacturer for non-aqueous solvent systems SolSep and membrane application centre MACT have cooperated with NL GUTS members IOI LodersCroklaan and Cargill to test the possibility of solvent resistant nanofiltration SRNF to debottleneck distillation for recovering acetone and hexane form edible oil extraction and reduce energy consumption. Pilot rig, approach, membrane selection, experimental results on critical parameters, module characteristics, run time, performance stability for different oil fractions and economic feasibility were presented.

The results are very encouraging. A large pilot will be prepared. www.solsep.com www.mact.nl
