Title
(EN) A PROCESS FOR THE RECOVERY OF CITRIC ACID
(FR) PROCEDE DE RECUPERATION D'ACIDE CITRIQUE
Abstract
(EN)
The invention provides a process for the recovery of citric acid from an aqueous solution feed stream originating in fermentation of carbohydrates and utilizing an amine solvent extraction step for separation of impurities comprising: subjecting said aqueous solution feed stream A to a treatment for partial recovery of citric acid, wherein said treatment is other than amine solvent extraction, to form a first portion of purified citric acid B and a secondary feed stream F; subjecting at least a portion G of said secondary feed stream F to a treatment consisting of amine solvent extraction to form a second portion of purified citric acid solution and to reject substantial of impurities initially present in said portion of said secondary feed stream; subjecting said second portion of purified citric acid solution to crystallization; and recycling mother liquor from said crystallization.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un procédé destiné à récupérer de l'acide citrique à partir d'un flux d'alimentation en solution aqueuse résultant de la fermentation de glucides, et faisant appel à une opération d'extraction de solvant aminique pour la séparation d'impuretés. Ce procédé consiste à soumettre le flux d'alimentation en solution aqueuse (A) à un traitement destiné à la récupération partielle de l'acide citrique, ledit traitement n'étant pas une extraction de solvant aminique, de manière à former une première partie d'acide citrique purifié (B) et un flux d'alimentation secondaire (F), à soumettre au moins une partie (G) du flux d'alimentation secondaire (F) à un traitement comprenant une extraction de solvant aminique de façon à former une seconde partie de solution d'acide citrique purifiée et à rejeter sensiblement les impuretés initialement présentes dans cette partie du flux d'alimentation secondaire, à soumettre ladite seconde partie de solution d'acide citrique purifiée à une cristallisation, et à recycler la liqueur mère résultant de cette cristallisation.
