In this module the principles of the most important industrial separation technologies will be discussed, including the processes of distillation, extraction, absorption, crystallisation, adsorption, membrane separation, filtration, and osmosis. The technologies will be discussed from the underpinning fundamental physical phenomena to technological considerations including both process and materials requirements as applied for a variety of binary mixtures. In particular, the energy aspects of the processes will be examined and considerations will be made for challenges related to process sustainability at all levels.
