Using heat to separate and purify the components of large quantities of chemical mixtures is the most common and inefficient way in industry. The energy consumption of these processes such as evaporation and distillation accounts for 10 to 15 percent of the world’s annual energy use. SEPPURE created a chemically resistant nano-filter that does not use heat and separates chemicals at a molecular level. Our technology reduces the energy consumption of thermally-based chemical separations by at least 10X, and produces higher quality products.
