A series of commercially available Nanofiltration and Reverse Osmosis membranes have been investigated for the concentration of 2,3-butanediol and acetate within the context of a gas fermentation broth. The membrane BW30 has been found to exhibit suitable characteristics for the concentration of 2,3-butanediol and acetate within the gas fermentation broth.
