The impending crisis posed by water stress and poor sanitation represents one of greatest human challenges for the 21st century, and membrane technology has emerged as a serious contender to confront the crisis. Yet, whilst there are countless texts on wastewater treatment and on membrane technologies, none address the boron problem and separation processes for boron elimination. Boron Separation Processes fills this gap and provides a unique and single source that highlights the growing and competitive importance of these processes. For the first time, the reader is able to see in one reference work the state-of-the-art research in this rapidly growing field. The book focuses on four main areas: Effect of boron on humans and plants; Separation of boron by ion exchange and adsorption processes; Separation of boron by membrane processes; Simulation and optimization studies for boron separation; Provides in one source a state-of-the-art overview of this compelling area; Reviews the environmental impact of boron before introducing emerging boron separation processes; Includes simulation and optimization studies for boron separation processes; Describes boron separation processes applicable to specific sources, such as seawater, geothermal water and wastewater.
