Technologies for Effective Isolation of Bioactive Compounds from by-Products of Plant and Animal Origin. ACRONYM: TECBIOTA

Description of the project offered: 
Almost every process in such industries as chemical, pharmaceutical, food, etc. comprising separation of components of complex mixtures. Today membrane technologies compete with many traditional methods of separation and are becoming more widely used.
Among the advantages of membrane processes - soft conditions, continuity, no additional reagents, easy scalability, and probably the most important features - a high performance and low energy consumption.
In the dairy industry, ultrafiltration is used to in range of operations, such as the normalization of the protein in the cheese milk, dry products, in the production of fresh cheese, concentration of protein and etc. concentration of calcium of permeate, and that to decrease the lactose concentration in the milk.
Today, the known inorganic composite membrane containing a wide range of modifiers: zeolites, oxides, metallic catalysts, silica and others. Typically, they are in the form of ultra-thin active layer on the inert substrate. These materials are used in baromembrane, pervaporation and in catalytic processes (selective withdrawal of products from the reaction zone or direct participation in catalytic processes). Their advantage over polymer is heat and chemical resistance, and ease of regeneration, which usually occurs by burning sludge organic matter. However, the usage of such membranes is limited to low mechanical stability of the active layer, which is usually localized to the outer membrane surface. Such instability is manifested especially at elevated temperatures, since thermal expansion coefficients of the substrate and the active layer significantly different. After the process baromembrane separation the active layer is destroyed when cleaning the membranes of sediment. Solving the problem might be inner pore formation of the active layer. This method is used for catalytic membrane contact effects: The catalyst is introduced into the macropore ceramic base.
Thus, the proposed modification methods for forming inorganic active layer incorporated into the porous ceramic base with the aim of creating various membranes functionality.
