The application of process intensification goes further than an efficiency increase in existing production processes. It consists of concepts aiming at productivity increase and sustainable separation, while preserving and improving selectivity and product quality. VITO applies membrane technology for the direct coupling with chemical and biological conversion processes and as alternative for the energy-intensive distillation techniques.
