High Tech Separation Review
Water and chemical purification have never been so demanding. The separations industry is driven by these applications, as well as the need for more effective waste material handling. The problem may be isolating a substance of commercial interest in the laboratory, purifying a drug or food product, or cleaning nuclear waste from contaminated soil; a minute change in the yield of a costly drug can spell the difference between success and failure; the ability to remove traces of toxic substances from waste streams. It all comes down to the separation and purification methods used. The right technology choice can pay dividends in human safety and add dollars to the profit column.
The aggregate market for all advanced novel separations techniques is estimated at $1.5 billion in 2002. Growing at an average annual growth rate of 18.5% over the next five years, this market is expected to reach nearly $3.5 billion by 2007. Electrically driven systems will comprise the bulk of this market, with an expected total of $2.45 billion in 2007.
