AbstractThis chapter describes all important aspects of a membrane-based separation process. After a brief introduction properties of membrane materials and their relevance for gaseous and liquid separation are described in details including the specific information relevant for gas-vapour, reverse osmosis, nanofiltration, ultrafiltration and microfiltration processes. Currently used separation models based on solution diffusion and pore flow are described for different type of membrane processes including the applicable mathematical equations. Use and potential application of Computational Fluid Dynamics techniques in developing improved products and enriching understanding of flow behaviour, has also been included. The Chapter closes with a brief description of future directions in membrane technology and its industrial applications.
