Membrane technology is an important part of separation technology. In view of its versatility and low-energy consumption, its usage in the industry is growing compared with other separation and purification processes such as distillation and crystallization. Because of industrial needs and advances in material science, many new membrane materials are being developed, which should make their related separation processes more efficient. This volume broadly addresses the field of membranes and membrane processes. It highlights new developments in the field, as well as research opportunities for the future.
