Developing Novel Plant Proteins and the Role Membrane Processing Plays
The demand for more and varied plant protein sources is growing. The supply of underutilized plant protein sources is also growing. How can membrane processing help bring these proteins to market? What challenges arise when attempting to do so? We will attempt to answer these two questions by focusing on two case studies, one involving native proteins and the other involving hydrolyzed proteins. We will also focus on what comes next, what challenges await in scaling, and what will accelerate the development of these processes and plant protein products, from one researcher’s perspective.

The Membrane Technology Forum is the go-to source for processors, plant managers, engineers, chemists, equipment manufacturers, research and development professionals, sales & marketing specialists, technicians and many others. The Exhibit Hall will provide attendees with the opportunity to discover cutting-edge solutions for their most pressing membrane technology challenges.

On the last day of the program, the Membrane Technology Forum will offer tours at local membrane companies. Attendees will have the opportunity to sign up for a small fee.
