Thank you!

What to Expect

Separation technology is at the heart of industrial processes and manufacturing. With industrials accounting for 22% of global carbon emissions, sustainable separation technologies will play an important role in decarbonizing operations. Inefficient thermal separations can account for as much as 45% of in-plant energy use. Although alternatives to distillation, such as separating molecules according to their chemical properties or size, are being demonstrated, these technologies are expensive to scale up.  

In this Lux Ideathon, we’ll look at innovations in materials and process design that are the building blocks of new separations to decarbonize manufacturing.
