Doctoral Thesis / Dissertation from the year 2013 in the subject Engineering - Chemical Engineering, grade: "0", Universidad de Valladolid, language: English, abstract: Membrane Technology applied, among others, in processes such as Ultrafiltration (UF) and Nanofiltration (NF), has become an important part of biotechnological separation processes in recent decades. Its main feature, the morphology of the porous filters, leading to a “sieving mechanism” allows effective separation with high selectivity features and made in energy and environmental conditions very interesting. Given the enormous development of membrane filters, it becomes necessary the growth in parallel of characterization techniques applied to such filters, as essential tools for both manufacturers and end-users or researchers. In this sense we need to know most exactly possible, both functional and structural parameters of the membrane, all necessary for a proper choice of that with a view to a particular application. The question we must face is: Is there a characterization method, by itself, giving us a clear and easily interpretable picture of the true structure and functionality of the filter?. The answer to this question is obviously no. There are so many structural and functional parameters that contribute to the exact knowledge of the membrane, that there is no technique that can bring us all this wealth of information. From the industrial and commercial standpoints, the parameter most used and required, in view of possible applications of the filters, it is the molecular weight cut-off (MWCO), although it is clear that by itself is not a definitive tool for choosing a membrane filter. SMAP® group long experience in membrane characterization allows us to conclude that porosimetric techniques give interesting information related to the size and size distribution of the pores present in a membrane, information that can be conveniently checked against functional aspects of it. In this sense, we can consider that Liquid-liquid displacement porosimetry (LLDP) is the most promising porosimetric technique in the range of Ultrafiltration, thus giving us important information about these filters.

The current vigour in separations research principally derives from the need for pioneering separations processes in an emerging technology (biotechnology), from new societal emphases (reduction of chemical emissions into the environment), as well as from opportunities for achieving dramatic improvements in the efficiency of a number of manufacturing technologies through the development of a new generation of membranes (novel membrane applications). Accordingly, the contributions to this volume are grouped into `Membranes in Biotechnology' (11 papers), `Membranes in Environmental Technology' (6 papers), and `New Concepts' (4 papers). This is followed by one contribution each on `Energy Requirements' and `Education', i.e. membrane processes within an academic curriculum. The book thus amounts to a state-of-the-art review of applied membrane processes. Even though other texts have appeared in recent years, a more documented, practical book is needed, with a strong interaction with the collateral disciplines of materials sciences, life sciences and environmental science. This book emphasizes the need for such an integrated approach to membrane processes.

Polymers have achieved an enviable position as the class of materials having the highest volume of production, exceeding that of both metals and ceramics. The meteoric rise in the production and utilization of polymers has been due to advances in polymer synthesis which allow the creation of specific and well-defined molecular structures, to new knowledge concerning the relationships between polymer structure and properties, and to an improved understanding of how processing can be used as a tool to develop morphological features which result in desired properties. Polymers have truly become 'engineered materials' in every sense of the term. Polymer scientists and engineers are forever seeking to modify and improve the properties of synthetic polymeric systems for use in specific applications. Towards this end they have often looked to nature for advice on how to design molecules for specific needs. An excellent illustration of this is the use of noncovalent bonding (ionic, hydrogen, and van der Waals) in lipids, proteins, and nucleic acids, where these noncovalent bonds, acting both intra and intermolecularly, precisely control the structure and thus the function of the entire system. The utilization of ionic bonding, in particular in man-made polymers has attracted widespread interest in recent years, since ionic interactions exert a similar strong influence on the structure and properties of these synthetic systems.

This publication presents the lectures given at the course on Advanced Separation Technology for Industrial Waste Minimization: Environmental and Analytical Aspects (13-15 October, 1992, Ispra, Italy) organized jointly by the Technical University of Lisbon, University of Calabria and the Environment Institute of the Joint Research Centre of the Commission of the European Communities at Ispra. This course is integrated in a programme for education and training in Advanced Separation Technology for Industrial Waste Minimization supported by the Community Action Programme for Education and Training for Technology (COMETT II). The lecture material is based on case studies of importance to textile, tanneries, pulp and paper, metal finishing and electroplating, food, and other industries. Environmental regulations have lead industrial engineers to search for more efficient, less energy consuming and less waste producing processes. Membrane-based separation processes contributed to recover water, raw materials and energy and to achieve simultaneously pollution control. Along this book emphasis will be given to this fast growing area of process technology.
