  6. Foam Fractionation

    Principles and Process Design

    By Paul Stevenson, Xueliang Li

    Foam fractionation is a separation process in which proteins and other amphipathic species adsorb to the surface of bubbles. The bubbles are then removed from the solution in the form of foam at the top of a column. Due to its cost-effectiveness, foam fractionation has the potential for rapid...
