Membrane Engineering for the Treatment of Gases Volume 1: Gas-separation Problems with Membranes Synopsis

Membranes already have important applications in artificial organs, the processing of biotechnological products, food manufacture, waste water treatment, and seawater desalination. Their uses in gaseous mixture separations are, however, far from achieving their full potential. Separation of air components, natural gas dehumidification and sweeting, separation and recovery of CO2 from biogas, and H2 from refinery gases are all examples of current industrial applications. The use of membranes for reducing the greenhouse effect and improving energy efficiency has also been suggested. New process intensification strategies in the petrochemical industry have opened up another growth area for gas separation membrane systems and membrane reactors. This two volume set presents the state-of-the-art in membrane engineering for the separation of gases. It addresses future developments in carbon capture and utilization, H2 production and purification, and O2/N2 separation. Topics covered include the: applications of membrane gas separation in the petrochemical industry; implementation of membrane processes for post-combustion capture; commercial applications of membranes in gas separations; simulation of membrane systems for CO2 capture; design and development of membrane reactors for industrial applications; Pd-based membranes in hydrogen production; modelling and simulation of membrane reactors for hydrogen production and purification; novel hybrid membrane/pressure swing adsorption process for gas separation; molecular dynamics as a new tool for membrane design, and physical aging of membranes for gas separations. Volume 1 focuses predominantly on problems relating to membranes.

Membrane Engineering for the Treatment of Gases Volume 1: Gas-separation Problems with Membranes Press Reviews

Drug discovery and the development requires the active collaboration of researchers from many scientific disciplines and sub-disciplines and the RSC has created a great opportunity to provide the necessary range of publications to facilitate this.Professor Robin Ganellin, University College London, UK The RSC Drug Discovery series presents a good insight into many aspects of drug discovery. In my new role transitioning from a long career in the pharmaceutical industry to academia, the RSC Drug Discovery series will help facilitate my mission of providing students, faculty and future researchers with a good understanding of modern drug discovery.Magid Abou-Gharbia, Professor of Medicinal ChemistryDirector Moulder Center for Drug Discovery and Biomedical Research, Temple University, USA
