Advances in Membrane Technologies
where she leads her research group on advanced membrane science and nanotechnology for energy and water sustainability and biomedical applications; biomimetic nanomaterials for advanced technologies; and process modeling, simulation, and optimization of complex systems. Contents Preface XIII Chapter 1 Introductory Chapter: An Overview of Recent Advances in Membrane Technologies by Arash Mollahosseini and Amira Abdelrasoul Preface Membrane technologies are currently the most effective and
... able methods utilized in diversified water filtration, wastewater treatment, as well as industrial and sustainable energy applications. This book covers essential subsections of membrane separation and bioseparation processes from the perspectives of technical innovation, novelty, and sustainability. As membrane processes are implemented at the majority of water treatment plants worldwide, wastewater and water treatment processes related to this, including reverse osmosis, membrane distillation, forward osmosis, pretreatments, novel materials, enhancing membranes for water treatment, and other topics such as water desalination sustainability, are important areas of this book. The applications of ultrasound in membrane fouling control in wastewater treatment and protein purification downstream processing will be a critical area of interest.
