Description

Current Trends and Future Developments in Bio-Membranes: Membrane Technology for Water and Wastewater Treatment - Advances and Emerging Processes presents recent advances and a status update on the applications of membrane processes to both urban and industrial wastewater. Specific case studies of membrane technologies are described. Membrane processes have been widely studied, but their application in the wastewater sector is increasing rapidly. The book deals with the applications to the wastewater sector (e.g. MBR, NF, RO, ED) and emerging membrane technologies (e.g. MBfR, MD, FO, MFC). Specific case studies of membrane technology application and relevant wastewaters (e.g. municipal, dairy, oily refinery, etc.) are also discussed.

Key Features

  • Presents recent advances of wastewater treatment using membrane processes
  • Outlines novel and emerging membrane technologies, e.g., membrane distillation, forward osmosis and membrane biofilm reactors
  • Includes recent developments of more consolidated membrane processes, e.g., membrane biological reactors, nanofiltration, reverse osmosis, etc., either for water treatment or desalination
  • Includes interesting and instructive case studies on the application of membrane technologies to various wastewater sources, e.g., municipal, dairy, olive mill, refinery, pulp and paper
