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.

The goal of this special issue is to provide a forum for recent developments in theory, state-of-the-art experiments, and computations on the interaction between flow and transfer in single and multi-phase flow, and from small scales to large scales.

This book describes the various filtration processes using membranes such as microfiltration, ultrafiltration, nanofiltration, reverse osmosis. Fluid mechanics concepts are reviewed in order to permit to describe the flow inside filtration modules.
