Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue on “Advanced Membrane Technology on Desalination and Concentration” aims to introduce further possibilities of membrane technology and the latest technology of desalination and concentration. Membrane technology is indispensable in a wide range of industrial fields, such as the seawater desalination field, water purification field, pharmaceutical field, food/beverage field, chemical/electronics field, and recycling field. These technologies are continuously being developed, and once complete, they will make our lives more comfortable.

This Special Issue focuses on desalination and concentration. In order to further expand the possibilities of membrane technology, this Special Issue targets desalination and concentration for any substance or ion. Furthermore, there are no restrictions on the types of membranes (RO, IEM, etc.), and membrane technology combining different types of membranes is also within the scope of this Special Issue. This Special Issue is open to researchers, engineers, and users who are associated with membrane technologies in terms of desalination and concentration in all fields, and covers a broad range of topics:

  • Membrane performance evaluation (e.g., selectivity, permeability, fouling, lifespan, spacers effect, and cost);
  • System design and/or industrial examples (unit systems and/or combined systems with other membrane technology);
  • Operating conditions, membrane reuse, membrane cleaning, and feasibility studies;
  • Membrane manufacturing (lab scale and/or industrial scale);
  • Transport phenomena, chemical reactions, mathematical modeling, and numerical simulations.

We invite authors to submit original research articles, review papers, and communications for this Special Issue on “Advanced Membrane Technology on Desalination and Concentration”.

Dr. Yoshihiko Sano
Guest Editor

Manuscript Submission Information

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.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2700 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
