Membrane Contactors: Fundamentals, Applications and Potentialities, Volume 11 covers new operations that could be efficiently used to improve the performance of a variety of industrial production cycles in applications ranging from biotechnology to agrofood. This book focuses on the basic "principles of work": required membrane materials and properties; major operating parameters; the importance of module configuration and design and; the performance of membrane contactors in specific processes. The authors dynamic approach to this subject makes Membrane Contactors: Fundamentals, Applications and Potentialities, Volume 11 the most comprehensive book currently available on all aspects related to the 'membrane contactor world.
* Describes new unit operations in process engineering

Professor Enrico Drioli has been working in Membrane Science and Membrane Engineering for many years, beginning as a student in Chemistry at the University of Naples. He is a Full Professor at the Department of Chemical Engineering and Materials at the University of Calabria, where he founded the Institute of Membrane Technology of the Italian Research Council in 1993. He served there as Director until December 2008. He also served as Dean of the School of Engineering at the University of Calabria from 1982 to 1985. His scientific activity has focused mainly on the following fields: Membrane Science and Engineering, Membranes in Artificial Organs, Integrated Membrane Processes, Membrane Preparation and Transport Phenomena in Membranes, Membrane Distillation and Membrane Contactors, and Catalytic Membrane and Catalytic Membrane Reactors. He is the recipient of numerous awards and honors, including: Doctorate Honoris Causa from University of Paul Sabatier of Toulouse (France) (8 July 2009); International Cooperation Honor Award, September 2005, given by the Membrane Industry Association of China (MIAC) for his special dedication to the International Cooperation between China and Europe in the field of membrane and science technology; President of the European Society of Membrane Science and Technology (today European Membrane Society) (1982 - 1998); Member of the International Scientific Advisory Committee of the Grand Water Research Institute at Technion - Israel Institute of Technology, Israel (since 2004); Member and Moderator of the Research Advisory Council of the Middle East Desalination Research Center Oman, Muscat (since May 1997); Member of the International Advisory Board of the State Key Laboratory of Catalysis, Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences (since 2007); Founding member of the European Federation on Regenerative Medicine (since 2006); Expert on the panels of the OECD project "Nanotechnology and clean water (www.oecd.org/sti/nano). He is also the author of more 530 scientific papers, 18 patents in the field of Membrane Science and Technology, and 10 scientific books .
