Special Issue "Application of Membrane Technology in Foods and Natural Products"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 December 2023 | Viewed by 4462
Interests: membrane technology in food application; functional components in natural products
Membrane technology has been widely applied in the area of foods and natural products, in processes such as clarification, separation, and concentration with microfiltration, ultrafiltration, nanofiltration, reverse osmosis, forward osmosis, etc., as well as preservation with films and packages. Within these applications, submissions to this Special Issue may focus on process, fouling, food characteristics, membrane properties, etc.
This Special Issue aims to gather original research articles and reviews on recent advances in membrane technology as well as their application in foods and natural products. Research areas may include (but are not limited to) the following:
- Foods and natural products processing;
- Waste recovery in food and natural product industry;
- Foods and natural products wastewater treatment;
- Membrane process enhancement in foods and natural products;
- Films for food packaging;
- Membrane fabrication for foods and natural products.
We look forward to receiving your contributions.
