Overview

"Membrane Technology and Applications is the most authoritative overview available today of separation membranes, their theoretical underpinnings, manufacture and use. This second edition has been fully revised and expanded to provide comprehensive, up-to-the-minute coverage of the latest developments in the field." "Many changes have been made for the new edition, especially in the reverse osmosis, microfiltration and gas separation chapters, to reflect technology advances and emerging applications that are now coming on-line. In addition, there is new coverage of the separation of organic liquid mixtures by hyperfiltration, and a fuller and more detailed treatment of nanofiltration. New applications of microfiltration in municipal water treatment are also discussed. In the gas separations area, the section on natural gas processing has been enlarged, as has the discussion of hydrogen separation in refineries. The final chapter incorporates advances in membrane contactors, such as those used on off-shore oil platforms, as well as new developments in membrane reactors." This second edition of Membrane Technology and Applications will be the guide of choice for any engineer, whether a student tentatively approaching the subject for the first time, or a seasoned expert seeking an all-inclusive handbook.
