Developments and applications of membranes in chemical and bioprocess engineering

Abstract

Membranes are increasingly being used in the chem. and bioprocess industries replacing more conventional sepn. techniques and as a means of producing high purity intermediates for further processing. Application of membranes in the water industry and waste treatment is also becoming increasingly important as water shortage and environmental problems need to be addressed. An outline of the materials used for the prodn. of membranes and their applications are described. Some of the research into the development of more selective membranes for vapor sepns. and pervaporation is discussed. An example of the latest work on the development of ceramic hollow fiber membranes is also given. [on SciFinder (R)]
