A Potential Application of Nanofiltration Technology in Chemical Industry

R.V.S. Nagarajan

Abstract


The upsurge in energy costs and the demands for products with larger nutritional value and of processing ways less toxic to the environment are eye-catching factors for transferring membrane processing to food industries. Nanofiltration (NF) technology is still progressing, finding more and more uses in food processing and seems as a vital alternative to conventional methods. The purpose of this review is to present the recent development and future potential of NF processes in the chemical industry. Recent research has highlighted the potential for NF use in wide ranging, including water softening, wastewater treatment, vegetable oil processing, beverage, dairy and sugar industry.
