Cellulose ion exchange resins are used across most sectors and specifically to produce dairy, baby food, performance food supplements and food intolerance products, utilising an adsorption process for applications such as:
- Selective, high purity extraction of specific, undenatured, functional proteins and enzymes from food waste streams such as cheese whey and abattoir waste.
- Water softening, removing calcium and other salts from water to suit chemical industries and improve potable water.
- Waste flocculation and removal, removing heavy metals and impurities from process streams.
Media is the support structure of a resin, with a functional group still being required. However the support structure influences the specific binding capacity, stability, active surface area and resolution of the adsorption process.
