Abstract

 

Ultrafiltration was used to clarify glucose from cellulose hydrolysate using polyethersulfone (PES) membrane. The flux behavior of
PES membrane was studied in concentrating glucose from cellulose hydrolysate during dead end ultrafiltration in different pH of
solutions and Kumar’s model was applied to analyse the fouling mechanism. The permeation of glucose achieved more than 93%
for all the different pH solution. The permeate flux decreased over time as a result of membrane fouling. The minimum fouling
was obtained at pH solution above the IEP due to protein-protein and membrane-protein repulsions alleviating aggregation and
fouling. Cake formation blocking was identified as the dominant mechanism for flux decline.
