A response to increasingly stringent regulation of pollution and toxicity levels in industrial waste discharge, Micellar Enhanced Ultrafiltration: Fundamentals & Applications offers the most complete book available on the benefits and use of micellar-enhanced ultrafiltration (MEUF) to achieve continuous removal of organic and inorganic pollutants.
An Unparalleled Book That Addresses Both Academic and Industrial Points of View
Several membrane-based techniques, such as microfiltration, ultrafiltration, nanofiltration, and reverse osmosis, are currently used in a wide range of applications throughout the textile, pulp and paper, sugar, chemical, pharmaceutical, biomedical, biotechnological, and food industries. However, although reverse osmosis is an effective means of removing contaminants, this book explains why MEUF is a better substitute, as it less expensive, less energy-intensive, and more efficient and practical for a wider range of applications.
Topics covered include:
Effects of pollution in water and its consequences
Various treatment processes and membrane technologies
Fundamentals of ultrafiltration
Outline of various membrane modules and modeling approaches
Principles of colloid chemistry
Theories of micelle formation
Stability and dynamics of micelles
Phenomena of counterion binding
Solubilization of organic pollutants
Selection criteria for surfactants
Various flux enhancement techniques
Recovery of precious metals
This book conveys how, with proper selection of surfactant and membrane, MEUF can be used to efficiently remove almost all metal ions (heavy metals, lanthanides, radioa
