Description

The development and deployment of membrane technologies continues to advance thanks to innovative materials and novel engineering approaches. Membranes for clean and renewable power applications introduces the principles and concepts of membrane technology and explores the use of this technology in clean energy applications.Chapters in part one introduce the utilization of membrane technology in the production of clean and renewable power and the combining of membrane processes with renewable energy technologies. Part two focusses on membranes for biofuel production and processing including membranes and membrane reactors for the production of biodiesel and second generation biofuels. Part three discusses membranes for syngas, hydrogen and oxygen production and processing. Chapters highlight steam reforming of biofuels for the production of hydrogen-rich gas A., perovskite membrane reactors, and environmental analysis of hydrogen-methane blends for transportation. Chapters in part four explore membranes for fuel cells including ceramic membranes for intermediate temperature solid oxide fuel cells (SOFC), microbial fuel cells, and direct bioethanol fuel cells. Finally, part five discusses membranes integrated with solar, wind energy and water-related applications including membrane technologies for solar-hydrogen production, solar-desalination plants, and the storage as methane of energy generated by wind power and other renewable sources. A final chapter introduces wastewater processing, energy conservation and energy generation.Membranes for clean and renewable power applications is a comprehensive resource for professionals and consultants in the clean and renewable energy industry, membrane and materials scientists and professionals, and academics and researchers in the field.

About the Editors

A Gugliuzza

Annarosa Gugliuzza works at the Institute on Membrane Technology-Italian National Research Council (ITM-CNR), Italy.

A Basile

Angelo Basile, officially qualified as a Full Professor at university in the subject “Sistems, Methods and Technologies of the Chemical Engineering Processes”, until 2020 was a senior researcher at the Italian National Research Council (CNR), wherein he developed membranes for gas purification and membrane reactors for pure hydrogen production. His prolific research works have been published in numerous papers and conference proceedings, and he has also produced various Italian (8), European (3 )and worldwide (1)patents. Basile has edited more than 60 scientific books and 60 special journal issues on membrane science and technology. He is an associate editor of various international journals (like IJHE) and Editor-in-Chief of the International Journal of Membrane Science & Technology; and member of the editorial board of more 20 int. journals. Angelo Basile’s h-index 51, on the areas: Energy, Chem. Eng., Env. Science, Materials Science, Chemistry, (www.scopus.com – 21 March 2022). Today Basile is a R&D Manager at ECO2Energy (Rome) and Hydrogenia (Genoa), both societies under the umbrella of the European society Greeninvest; he also is offcially collaborating with the Dept. of Eng. at the University Campus Bio-medical of Rome.
