Advanced Novel Separations
The present U.S. market for all of the advanced novel separation techniques covered in this report is believed to be about $1,026 million in 2000. It is estimated that the market for these products is growing at about 23.4% per year and that this market will reach $2,939 million in 2005.
Electrically driven separation systems have been around for decades. Some, such as fuel cells, are fairly advanced, even though research and development work continues. It is estimated the U.S. market for all electrically driven novel separations is $633 million in 2000 and is growing at 28.4% per year. As a result, sales levels should reach $2,205 million in 2005.
Rotating and small moving membrane systems are a mature market that has been in existence for many years. These products are believed to represent a $332 million market in 2000. It is estimated that the market for these products is growing at about 13% per year and that it will reach $612 million in 2005.
GOALS AND OBJECTIVES
The market for separations is quite large. Any industry using pure water or chemicals represents a potential market, along with those industries that produce waste materials or industries that purify and/or concentrate liquids and gases. Market opportunities are expanding due to improved technology and energy savings. Increased enforcement of waste cleanup legislation also provides an opportunity for the separations industry. This report serves as an in introduction to state-of-the-art separations techniques. A process description is provided for each technique, along with background, applications, and patent information when available.
REASONS FOR PUBLISHING THE REPORT
The field of separation science continues to grow and evolve. Researchers in university and industrial laboratories continue to explore, develop, and improve processes and technologies. This report examines novel techniques for separations and analyzes the markets for these techniques. A few of the processes described in this report are already available commercially and have become well known. Others are still in the research phase and are somewhat obscure.
