Koch Modular to exhibit at ABLC NEXT in San Francisco, California, on October 26-28, 2022, at booth #14.


Join Koch Modular at this year’s Advanced Bioeconomy Leadership Conference (ABLC NEXT 2022) in San Francisco on October 26th-28th. ABLC Next is a connected series of conferences and events focused on today’s critical issues within the bioeconomy, including renewable chemicals, materials, and fuels.

As a dedicated partner within the biochemical and biodiesel industry, Koch Modular collaborates with emerging technology companies that address these important challenges head-on. With 40+ years of experience, the company’s experienced engineers strive to solve the most complex separation problems within the product purification, organic chemical separations, solvent recovery, renewable energy production, stream stripping, wastewater treatment, solvent drying, and acid gas removal industries. Koch Modular is a crucial innovation partner from early concept to modular delivery of the first pilot, demo, or commercial-scale process system. 

“Virtually every new production system will require separation and purification at some point within the process. We are one of the only engineering companies that can offer a guarantee on product purity," states Chris Rentsch, Process Development Manager at Koch Modular.

Tom Schafer, Vice President of Koch Modular sat down with Process-Worldwide to explain that “Today, the industry is shifting away from our dependence on the future use of petroleum-based feedstocks and demanding projects which support decarbonization. Scalability and repeatable design characteristics are a must when bringing decarbonization projects to the market.” Modular plants are addressing the needs within the industry. “A modular plant delivery model will play an important and strategic role in delivering tomorrow's projects," Schafer added. 

With clients such as PureCycle Technologies, Origin Materials, Bluescape and Regen III, Koch Modular is eager to share its expertise and real-life experience with separation technology and applications within the chemical processing industry. 

Stop by booth #14 to chat with one of our experienced engineers.
