A detailed look at the most recent developments in sustainablemembrane technology for use in energy, water, and the environment

A collection of twenty-seven groundbreaking papers on importantideas about the development of membrane science and technology, Sustainable Membrane Technology for Energy, Water, andEnvironment brings together contributions from leadinginternational experts in one comprehensive volume. Covering thelatest developments and most innovative ideas in the field, thisbook is a unique resource for understanding the growing interest inusing membranes across several industries.

Divided into six chapters that cover new membrane materials andmembrane development; membrane applications for gas and vaporseparation; membrane applications in water treatment; environmentalapplications of membranes; energy applications of membranes; andother industrial membrane applications, the book looks at thecurrent and emerging applications for membrane science andtechnology in detail. As the Association of Southeast Asian Nations(ASEAN) and the Middle East emerge as the next generation ofmembrane research and development centers, in part due to theirneed for water and natural gas production technology, this bookprovides invaluable insights into the cutting-edge work takingplace in these regions. Additional topics covered also include newmembrane materials, membrane applications for food processing, andmuch more.

Designed for engineers, scientists, professors, and graduatestudents who are engaged in membrane R&D activities, as well asfor anyone interested in sustainable development, SustainableMembrane Technology for Energy, Water, and Environment is acutting-edge look at membrane applications.
