Abstract

Different separations have been used for various environmental applications in industry. Selective separations for the target species and fast kinetics are among the most important criteria to select the most suitable separation process. A hybrid process combines elements of two or more traditional separation processes into one. The main benefits of hybrid processes are lower energy consumption than conventional systems, lower recycle stream, higher yields, and higher sustainability. The main goal of this article is to classify the membrane-based hybrid processes described in the literature. The attempt to introduce such hybrid processes, especially sorption-membrane filtration hybrid method, as an alternative means for environmental cleanup is the second goal. These processes were elucidated by modeling and construction of such systems through some case studies.
