The course aims at connecting membrane transport characteristics to industrial applications and processes. Students will be able to quantify the influence of operation parameters to final process efficiency. They will understand how the module design and operation can influence the overall membrane separation process performance. Students will be familiar with concepts that are limiting membrane separations, including concentration polarization and pressure ratio.
The course contains aspects related to selective transport phenomena that are relevant for diverse applications and processes. We will include processes utilizing porous, dense and ion selective membranes.
Transport theory will be derived for the different separation processes, including porous and dense membranes. Module design and process related conditions are then highlighted to describe their influence on the separation performance. Concepts like concentration polarization, boundary layer, limiting flux, and pressure ratio, will be introduced and explained connected to their corresponding application.
