Innovative Membrane Operations in Process Engineering for a Process Intensification Strategy presents the latest information on the process aspects of membrane operations and the integration of these aspects with studies of membrane materials for each specific operation. Traditional membrane and new membrane operations such as membrane distillation, membrane crystallization, membrane emulsification, membrane condenser, pressure retarded osmosis, and reverse electro dialysis are all included and analyzed, enabling users to easily identify the synergies between materials and processes, while also encouraging the development of integrated membrane systems that are consistent with process intensification strategies.

Key Features

  • Focuses on the material aspects of membrane science and their integration with process engineering, including process intensification strategies
  • Enables the easy identification of synergies between materials and processes
  • Includes cost and techno-economic considerations
  • Written by experts in the field of membrane science and technology


Process Engineers in all Industrial sectors; Chemical Engineers, Food Engineers, Biochemical Engineers, Space Engineers, Materials Engineers. Researchers and Technologists with interest in environmental problems, circular economy, biomedicine and biotechnology
