Book Description

Solid–Liquid Separation Technologies: Applications for Produced Water presents recent research and advances in various solid–liquid separation technologies and their applications to treating produced water. It covers fundamental principles and the importance of produced water in major industrial sectors and compares solid–liquid separation technologies. In addition, this book:

  • Presents the results of research studies conducted to evaluate the performance of solid– liquid separation technologies
  • Discusses a wide range of technologies, including membrane, filtration, crystallization, desalination, supercritical fluids, coagulation, and floatation
  • Includes experimental, theoretical, modeling, and process design studies

With its comprehensive coverage, this book is an essential reference for chemical researchers, scientists, and engineers in industry, academia, and professional laboratories. It is also an important resource for graduate and advance undergraduate students studying solid–liquid separations.
