345 Developments in Extractive Separations: Solvents

Tuesday, November 15, 2016: 12:30 PM - 3:00 PM
Mission II & III (Parc 55 San Francisco)
Description:
Solvent extraction continues to be an important unit operation. The increasing need to achieve higher recoveries and selectivities from feeds of lower product concentrations demands improvements in our understanding of extraction fundamentals, along with the consideration of new solvents, new processes, and new contacting and sensing/monitoring equipment. This session brings together persons from industry, academia, and government who practice solvent extraction, and serves as a forum to disseminate new knowledge in the field focusing on recent developments in solvent systems.
