Profile: Whitefox Technologies specialises in developing membrane-based engineering solutions for multiple industries including solvent recovery, biochemical and water applications.
Whitefox Technologies' proprietary polymer membrane technology provides proven advantages in terms of process efficiency, energy reduction and higher yield which result in operational savings, help increase revenue generation and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
The company combines in-depth knowledge of membrane separation with efficient process integration for new or existing production facilities and is focused on biofuel ethanol, pharmaceutical, industrial and potable ethanol.
Whitefox Technologies has identified biofuels as a key target market, which is globally valued at more than $55bn and is forecast to double by 2030.
