At the end of the course a student is expected to know how to: - explain the basic terms and membrane processes - interpret observed phenomena in the separation process and their influence to the separation process - compare the feasibility of membrane materials, modules and manufacturing processes - choose the most appropriate membrane and membrane process for a separation process - identify the possibilities, benefits and limits of membrane processes.


Membrane processes (micro-, ultra- and nanofiltration, reverse osmosis, pervaporation, etc.). Manufacturing membranes, membrane materials and structures, phenomena in membrane processes (fouling, concentration polarisation, etc.). Modules. Separation mechanisms. Characterisation of membranes. Applications.
