Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Membrane filtration, a well-established separation technology, has been applied in various domains such as biotechnology, pharmaceutical, food production, petroleum, desalination, and water facility industries. With the advent of membrane applications, it is clear that more industries will require advance membrane process technologies for multiple purposes of environmental and economic benefits. Till date, the membrane process technologies were developed through the experimental approaches; on contrary, computational approaches including computer-aided modeling, optimization, process monitoring, and artificial intelligence (AI) are highlighted to accelerate the advance of membrane technologies from membrane material design to decision-making of membrane replacement.

This special issue of the journal Membranes, “Membrane Processes Modeling and Optimization”, aims to cover the applications of computing and systems technology into the membrane process problems. Several major topics are including:

  • Modeling, numerical analysis and simulation
  • Mathematical programming (optimization)
  • Membrane process and material design
  • Membrane process dynamics, control, and monitoring
  • Membrane process operation and management
  • Domain applications (Molecular, biological, pharmaceutical, food, energy, and environmental systems)

The topics include but are not limited to the membrane processes, but the other topics related to the membrane and computing technologies are welcome.

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.
