Fundamental Modelling of Membrane Systems: Membrane and Process Performance summarizes the state-of-the-art modeling approaches for all significant membrane processes, from molecular transport, to process level, helping researchers and students who carry out experimental research save time and accurately interpret experimental data. The book provides an overview of the different membrane technologies, handling micro-, ultra-, and nanofiltration, reverse and forward osmosis, pervaporation, gas permeation, supported liquid membranes, membrane contactors, membrane bioreactors and ion-exchange membrane systems. Examples of hybrid membrane systems are also included.

Key Features

  • Presents an accessible reference on how to model membranes and membrane processes
  • Provides a clear, mathematical description of mass transfer in membrane systems
  • Written by well-known, prominent authors in the field of membrane science


PhD students, researchers in academia and industry working in chemical engineering, biochemistry and environmental engineering
