Separation and purification processes

Edited by Dr. Gongping Liu

Scope: This section welcomes fundamental and applied papers on membrane separation, adsorption technology, phase separation, extraction, distillation, chromatography, continuous separations and hybrid separation processes. Papers focussed on the applications of separation and purification processes to fields including, but not limited to, energy storage, desalination, biotechnology, resource recovery and bio-based feedstocks will also be considered.

  1. The recent roadmap of SPIRE initiative includes the development of “new separation, extraction and pre-treatment technologies” as one of the “key actions” for boosting sustainability, enhancing the availabilit...
