The Ion Exchange Resin Method
Flow type reaction separation system from Tohoku University
Ion exchange resins have been used as a separation medium in water.
Our ion exchange resin method is a revolutionary flow-type reaction separation technology that was the first to apply ion exchange resins as a catalyst in bio-mass derived oil separation. We use a solid catalyst, so various materials can be extracted from bio-mass derived oil, simply by exchanging the catalyst columns. We start with agricultural bio-mass waste products as the raw materials, process it through our ion exchange resin technology, to create commercial products that we consume in our daily lives, such as foods, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals and fuels.
