Results from this research describe membrane fouling behavior, type of foulants and the most appropriate membrane modifications needed to process the complex lignocellulosic slurries. For instance, lignin (one the major components of the pinewood feedstock), was found to be a major cause of biofouling, both as a suspended solid and soluble derivatives. The results obtained have been used to tailor the properties of membranes to improve the overall biorefinery process efficiencies. In addition to discoveries to improve fouling behavior, methods

Production of renewable liquid transportation fuels and chemicals from abundant biomass sources is an on-going challenge to reduce the consumption of limited petroleum feedstocks. Membrane separations can be integrated into a biorefinery to reduce water and energy consumption as well as increase process efficiencies. Unfortunately, current membrane materials suffer from severe fouling, which limits their applicability. Four areas of potential membrane integration into a lignocellulosic biorefinery were investigated, along with a corn ethanol separation, using analytical characterizations along with fouling
