Special Issue Information
Membrane technology plays an significant role in the separation of the liquid and gas mixtures. In recent years, gas membrane separation (hydrogen and VOCs recovery, helium enrichment, natural gas decarbonization and carbon capture), electrochemically driven membrane process (electrochemical separation), temperature difference driven membrane process (membrane distillation), high-pressure membrane processes (nanofiltration and reverse osmosis) and dialysis-driven membrane processes (forward osmosis) have played an important role in the fields of process intensification and energy efficiency. Among them, the membrane system is the ultimate embodiment of the industrialization of the membrane separation process due to its characteristics of easy coupling, small footprint, modularization and simple control. Aiming at the scientific laws behind the membrane separation process, the systematic research on the membrane separation process is of great significance for the development of membrane technology in the future.
To encourage the green development of various membrane-related separation processes, this Special Issue will emphasize the importance of novel membranes processes for potential industrial applications. Original contributions and reviews related to membranes processes and their applications, mainly for various separation processes such as microfiltration, nanafiltration, ultrafiltration, reverse osmosis, electrodialysis, pervaporation and gas separations are welcomed. Hybrid membrane and conventional separation processes (such as absorption, adsorption and cryogenic processes) are also welcomed.

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Membranes is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
