Membrane distillation (MD) is a relatively new thermal membrane process which is attracting significant interest as a potential low cost and energy saving alternative to conventional separation processes such as distillation and reverse osmosis (RO). Its main advantages are the possibility to exploit waste grade heat and low grade heat for operation, and the production of high-purity distillate which is almost independent of feed concentration.

An introduction to the quantitative treatment of chemical reaction engineering. The book is appropriate for a one-semester undergraduate or first-year graduate course. The text covers both homogeneous and heterogeneous reacting systems.
This book explains the basic principles behind what chemical engineers do and how they can use powerful tools from physics to solve problems involving steady-state processes. The book is designed as an introduction to the subject.
