Nanofiltration processes are finding wide applications in several 'wet' industries, such as water/wastewater treatment, water re-use, textile industry, diary industry, food industry and the pulp and paper industries. Despite this, no definitive book existsted till now which covers the principles of the techniques and their potential and actual applications. Now, this book that contains chapters from top international authorities, provides a comprehensive and up to date account which will be essential reading for membrane designers, manufacturers and end-users worldwide.

Readership: Water engineers; membrane designers and manufacturers; end users of membranes in the food, beverage, textile, paper, waste water and potable water industries.
