Liquid-liquid Extraction (LLE) is an often-overlooked process step that can lead to different kinds of bottlenecks during scale-up and production of a wide range of pharmaceuticals, fine & specialty chemicals in both batch and flow. Membrane-based continuous separation allows for the systematic development of mass transfer and separation for facile scaling of LLE. Importantly, this technology can be deployed equally well in both continuous and batch contexts delivering a number of advantages for biorefinery operators and manufacturers operating Microreactors; Plug Flow Reactors, and Microwave Systems.
Note – this webinar took place on Thursday 21 October 2021.
The webinar and Q&A session with Zaiput Flow Technologies’ CEO and Founder covered:
• How the Zaiput membrane separation technology works with solids.
• The applications of this technology in the pharmaceuticals industry.
• The challenges of using Zaiput’s separation technology.
• Why hybrid processes are a natural way forward to transition from batch to flow.
• Separation and chemical extraction are becoming integral to processes linked to drug manufacturing, oil and gas, fragrances, food, wastewater filtration, and biotechnology.
CEO and founder of Zaiput Flow Technologies, Dr. Adamo is an engineer and entrepreneur with extensive experience in the development of innovative solutions in the context of fluid flows. Dr. Adamo holds a Master of Science in Engineering from the University of Palermo, Italy and a Ph.D. in Fluid Mechanics from the University Federico II of Naples, Italy in addition to a Master of Science from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He was also awarded the Fulbright Scholarship.
After completing his graduate studies, Dr Adamo joined the laboratory of Prof. Klavs Jensen, first as Postdoctoral Associate and then as a Research Associate. In the Jensen Group, he worked on different applications of microfluidics, microchemistry and flow chemistry. He had a key design role in the context of the Pharmacy on Demand and Molecules on Demand projects sponsored by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA).
Dr. Adamo developed the technology at the core of Zaiput, he currently serves as the Innovation Advisor at Snapdragon Chemistry.
