About the book
Membrane technologies are currently the most effective and sustainable methods utilized in diversified water filtration, wastewater treatment, as well as industrial and sustainable energy applications. This book will cover essential subsections of membrane separation processes, from the perspectives of technical innovation, novelty, and sustainability. As membrane processes are implemented at the majority of water treatment plants in the world, wastewater and water treatment and processes related to that, including reverse osmosis, membrane distillation, forward osmosis, pretreatments, novel materials enhancing membranes for water treatment, and other topics such as water desalination sustainability, would be an important section of this book. Other critical areas of membrane applications will likewise be targeted. Among these, hemodialysis ultrafiltration membranes, issues of bioincompatibility, biofuel processing and roles of membranes in process enhancement, process intensifications, and innovative configuration of reactive-adsorptive-extractive membranes will be discussed. This book offers a comprehensive overview of the latest improvements and concerns with respect to membrane fouling remediation techniques and various sub-titles of membrane separation processes, which will be an efficient resource for engineers.
