• Addresses membrane and osmotic distillation, two closely related and novel processes that offer several advantages over conventional concentration processes
• Has a widespread impact and application of the technology in industries such as food, environment, and nuclear clean-up / containment
• Covers theoretical aspects of both processes, the properties of hydrophobic membranes, process economics, integrated processes and future prospects.
• Caters the presentation caters for the diversity of readership with respect to links with membrane technologies.
