Metal Oxide-infused Membranes Could Offer Low-energy Alternative for Chemical Separations

Chemical separation via distillation is a widely-used process in the manufacture of everything from gasoline and plastics to food—but it consumes a massive amount of energy. Researchers are working on membranes that could perform the same work with much less energy, while withstanding the harsh solvent-rich chemical streams.
