#22 - Extractive Separations (02C00)
Solvent extraction continues to be an important separation unit operation. The increasing needs to achieve higher recoveries and selectivities from feeds of lower product concentrations demand improvements in our understanding of extraction fundamentals, along with our consideration of new solvents, new processes, and new contacting and sensing/monitoring equipment. This session brings together persons from academe, industry, and government who do solvent extraction, and serves as forum to disseminate new knowledge in this field. Papers are welcome that deal with experimental and theoretical work.
