Description

Comprehensive Membrane Science and Engineering, Four Volume Set covers all aspects of membrane science and technology - from basic phenomena to the most advanced applications and future perspectives. Modern membrane engineering is critical to the development of process-intensification strategies and to the stimulation of industrial growth. The work presents researchers and industrial managers with an indispensable tool toward achieving these aims.

Key Features

  • Covers membrane science theory and economics, as well as applications ranging from chemical purification and natural gas enrichment to potable water
  • Includes contributions and case studies from internationally recognized experts and from up-and-coming researchers working in this multi-billion dollar field
  • Takes a unique, multidisciplinary approach that stimulates research in hybrid technologies for current (and future) life-saving applications (artificial organs, drug delivery)

Readership

Academic and industrial researchers working in the area of membranes and their application: wastewater, desalination, adsorption, catalysis, etc., process engineers in separation science, membrane scientists, biologists and biochemists, consultants and environmental scientists
