  2. 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...

  3. Solid State Fermentation for Foods and Beverages

    Edited by Jian Chen, Yang Zhu

    Series: Fermented Foods and Beverages Series

    Although one of the oldest microbial technologies used in food processing, solid-state fermentation (SSF) had, until recently, fallen out of favor. However, based on a series of established mathematical models, new design concepts for SSF bioreactors and process control strategies have been...

  4. Simultaneous Sulfate Reduction and Metal Precipitation in an Inverse Fluidized Bed Reactor

    UNESCO-IHE PhD Thesis

    By Denys Kristalia Villa Gomez

    Industrial activities like textile processing and mining are typical sources of heavy metal-rich wastewaters. The sulfate reducing process has become an attractive method for the production of sulfide to precipitate metals since most of these streams also contain sulfate, which is the electron...
