Simulated Moving Bed Chromatography- An advanced chromatography technique


Simulated Moving Bed Chromatography- An advanced chromatography technique

Chromatographic processes play an important role in the production of bio-pharmaceuticals. Polypeptides, proteins, enzymes and antibodies are captured, purified and polished by ion exchange, size exclusion, reverse phase, hydrophobic interaction or affinity chromatographic processes. Their scales range from a few kilograms a year of very potent compounds to large bulk productions of several tons. Only recently research groups primarily from academics have started to investigate continuous operating technologies such as simulated moving bed chromatography (SMB) to increase productivity of purification processes for bio-pharmaceuticals…Read More

 

MIT researchers have developed a new system that could potentially be used for converting power plant emissions of carbon dioxide into useful fuels for cars, trucks, and planes, as well as into chemical feedstocks for a wide variety of products. The new membrane-based system was developed by MIT postdoc Xiao-Yu Wu and Ahmed Ghoniem, the Ronald Crane professor of mechanical engineering, and is described in the journal ChemSusChem.The membrane, made of a compound of lanthanum, calcium, and iron oxide, allows oxygen from a stream of carbon dioxide to migrate through to the other side, leaving carbon monoxide behind.

New x-ray spectroscopy explores hydrogen-generating catalyst


Using a newly developed technique, researchers from Japan, Germany and US have identified a key step in production of hydrogen gas by a bacterial enzyme. Understanding these reactions could be important in developing a clean-fuel economy powered by hydrogen. The team studied hydrogenases – enzymes that catalyze production of hydrogen from two widely distributed organisms: Chlamydomonas reinhardtii, a single-cell algae and Desulfovibrio desulfuricans, a bacterium. Read More
Plastics lifecycle management is a central issue for the entire value chain and Total is developing some innovative and technological solutions for both feedstock and end-of-life. The growing interest in recycling from plastic value chain stakeholders is indisputable. Plastics recycling development must accelerate in order to help prevent plastic waste landfilling. Currently, the recycling rate for plastics is significantly lower than that of other materials – such as glass, steel, aluminium, paper – and the availability of quality plastic recycling is limited.

Water and food concerns give rise to Virtual Water

Water covers 70.9 per cent of the Earth’s surface and is an essential requirement for every living organism. A large amount of water is present in oceans and in small fractions in glaciers, in the Antarctica region and greenlands. Inspite of a large presence of water on earth, all is not available for human consumption and other purposes. The availability of freshwater is now becoming a huge for countries world over.Much of the water used in the world is for food production, starting from agriculture in the form of irrigation. This is a key component to produce the desired amount of food. Read More

This, in turn, serves to reduce fluctuations in production, improve yields, and lower costs of operation and equipment. On account of such advantages, the method is seeing fast adoption, according to a report by Transparency Market ResearchRead more

 

Arlanxeo said that its bio-based EPDM rubber is used in the Adidas soccer ball of the World Cup 2018. The EPDM rubber (ethylene-propylene-diene monomer) Keltan Eco 6950 is the rubber basis for a sponge rubber layer directly underneath the “Telstar 18” ball’s outer cover. It serves as a moldable cushion for the ball and supports optimal bounce characteristics during games. Materials that are used in this layer must meet strict requirements in properties such as density, hardness and weight, and they must also demonstrate good processability. The most important performance characteristic, however, is the elasticity and resilience of the layer. Read more
