    Membrane technologies play an increasingly important role in unit operations for resource recovery, pollution prevention, and energy production, as well as environmental monitoring and quality control. They are also key component technologies of fuel cells and bioseparation applications. Membrane Technologies and Applications provides essential data and background information on various dimensions of membrane technologies, with a major focus on their practical application.

    Membranes of inorganic materials offer cost-effective solutions for simple to complex separation problems. This book is designed for anyone interested in water and wastewater treatment, membrane suppliers, as well as students and academics studying the field.

    Introduction about Membranes and Membrane Based Separations Technology. Synthesis and Fabrication of Different Types of Membranes. Membrane Fouling and Controlling Technologies. Membranes for Gas Separation Applications. Membranes for Water and Wastewater Applications. Membranes for Food and Beverages Industry Applications. Membranes for Medicinal Applications. Membranes for Bio-separation of Proteins. Membranes for Fuel Cell and Hydrogen Generation Applications. Pervaporation Technology. Membrane Distillation. Liquid Membranes and its Applications. New types of Membrane Based Separations Technology.Techno-economic Evaluation of Membrane Separation Processes.
