In this study, the application of a new polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS)/dual support composite membrane was investigated by incorporating the pervaporation process into the A-B-E (acetone-butanol-ethanol) fermentation. The performance of the A-B-E fermentation using the integrated pervaporation/fermentation process showed higher biomass concentrations and higher glucose consumption rates than those of the A-B-E fermentation without pervaporation. The performance of the membrane separation was… CONTINUE READING
