Today consumers have more information about the food quality they purchase. They want safe and high quality foods.
In addition, the environmental issue takes on an important proportion, implying that food today must be related to maintaining health and not intervening in the environment.
In this context, membrane separation processes is considered an important tool to improve food systems, since they are conducted under mild conditions and consequently maintaining the nutritional and functional quality of the raw materials. Also recognized as a green technology by its characteristics of low energy consumption, production costs, equipment size, and waste generation.
This special issue is focused on membrane separation technologies applied on food and bioprocessing. We are expecting high quality research, experimental or theoretical papers. Review papers are also welcome. All aspects related directly or indirectly to food processing are included in the area of this Special Issue:
- Membrane separation technologies that have the potential to be innovative, sustainable, and affordable alternatives compared to conventional technologies;
- Combinations of membrane processes;
- Membranes for food industries: fruits, vegetables, oils, proteins;
- Membranes and bioreactors;
- Application of membrane processes to recovery bioactive molecules from agrifood residues.

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.
