Separation & Extraction
From Top Wiki
Within this category an overview is made of all technologies used to separate product or resource streams. A lot of separation techniques have already been used for many years.
Innovations are marginally noticeable through introductions of new technologies. Innovations are mainly seen in adaptations of existing technologies by the use of new media and adjustment of the hardware. Innovations are aimed at scaling up the technology and making it food-grade.
Lectures about new technologies can be found on the site www.toptechnologytalks.nl
