Course Description

Nowadays, membrane technologies are becoming more frequently used for separation of wide varying mixtures in the petrochemical-related industries and can compete successfully with traditional schemes. This course will highlight the application of membrane processes in petrochemical industry, processes such as Olefin/paraffin separation, light solvent separation, solvent dewaxing, phenol and aromatic recovery, dehydrogenation, oxidative coupling of methane and steam reforming of methane will be discussed in detail. Special emphasis will be drawn to using membrane processes for gas separation.

Course Objectives
