We are pleased to announce that BMC Chemical Engineering has launched with its first published articles. The Editors outline the journal's aims and scope in detail in this Editorial that accompanies the launch.
Professor Ana Barbosa-Póvoa, Editorial Advisor for BMC Chemical Engineering, gives her thoughts on sustainable process supply chains and their challenges for the future.
Membrane technology has dramatically advanced over the past 50 years by combining advances in materials with innovative module design and an increasingly deeper understanding of the associated transport phenomena. More recently two-dimensional (2D)-material nano-porous membranes, typically represented by graphene and its derivatives, have attracted vast interest and are generally believed to have great potential.
The conversion of CO2 to value-added products is essential to complete a carbon cycle; from hydrocarbons to CO2 then back to carbon-containing chemicals. However, CO2 conversion requires massive energy input because CO2 is thermodynamically very stable. The high social demand for CO2 reduction makes this challenging CO2 transformation a timely and attractive theme.
