Industrial Applications of Membrane Separation Processes
Membrane separation processes are widely used in various industrial operations to separate the desired components from the mixture. The membrane that is used depends on the type of process employed in the system. The membrane also varies in size and materials. This paper focused on the industrial application of ultrafiltration, microfiltration, and pervaporation. Ultrafiltration is effectively used in recovery of milk proteins in whey and reduction of waste. The process of microfiltration is successfully use in solids removal and disinfection of wastewaster. Pervaporation shows good result in the removal of volatile organic compounds in contaminated water.
