This introduction to chemical separations technology presents the chemical and/or physical basis of different techniques and explains how to evaluate them for design and analysis. Chemical separations are of central importance in many areas of environmental science, whether it is cleaning up polluted water or soil, the treatment of discharge streams from chemical processes, or modification of a specific process to decrease its environmental impact. This textbook is suitable for undergraduate and graduate students taking courses on environmental separations or environmental engineering. Many worked examples and over 100 homework problems are key highlights.


1. Introduction; 2. Separations as unit operations; 3. Separations analysis fundamentals; 4. Distillation; 5. Extraction; 6. Absorption and stripping; 7. Adsorption; 8. Ion exchange; 9. Membranes; Appendices.

'It is an ideal textbook for undergraduate and graduate students taking courses on environmental separations or environmental engineering.' Chemical Engineering '... expertly written, and has an easy to read and follow style and arrangement. The illustrations are sufficient in number to perfectly accompany the text, and are extremely clear in presentation. I certainly enjoyed reading this book, and I would hope it would be of benefit to others who are interested in chemical separations in an environmental context.' Measurement + Control '... highly recommended as an introductory reference for those working in the selection and design of separation techniques and equipments applied in the closed cycle technology in order to mitigate the pollution of air, water and soil.'
