About Us

Our Mission:

To reduce global GHG emissions by replacing conventional distillation with a low-energy low-temperature alternative.

Our Product:

An advanced new thermal separation technology that operates at room temperature and uses considerably less energy and water than conventional distillation processes.

Application in Biofuels / Biochemical Industry:

Drystill’s technology should be considered for any chemical separation process involving temperature sensitive materials; it operates at low temperature and reduces energy and water consumption. It is especially beneficial to the 1st and 2nd generation biofuel and biochemical industries, because it enables the removal of products such as ethanol and butanol from a live fermentation broth. We call this technique as CARAF (Concurrent Alcohol Removal And Fermentation). Many economic benefits flow from this technique including:

  • Elimination of product inhibition of microorganisms
  • Increased product yield
  • Higher volumetric productivity
  • Reduced risk of infections
  • Recovery of costly yeast & enzymes
  • Elimination of thermally induced heat exchanger fouling
  • Up to 60% reduction in energy consumption
  • Up to 80% reduction in water consumption
  • Reduction in maintenance costs
  • Reduction in greenhouse gas emissions
  • Smaller fermentation tanks
  • Smaller boiler and cooling equipment
  • Reduction in overall plant capital cost

Application in Other Industries besides Biochemicals :

  • Alcohol removal from wine and beer
  • Food processing
  • Fruit Juice Concentration
  • Pharmaceuticals
  • Dairy
  • Pulp & paper
  • Waste-water recycling
  • Others
