Membrane-Based Hybrid Processes for Wastewater Treatment analyzes and discusses the potential of membrane-based hybrid processes for the treatment of complex industrial wastewater, the recovery of valuable compounds, and water reutilization. In addition, recent and future trends in membrane technology are highlighted. Industrial wastewater contains a large variety of compounds, such as heavy metals, salts and nutrients, which makes its treatment challenging. Thus, the use of conventional water treatment methods is not always effective. Membrane-based hybrid processes have emerged as a promising technology to treat complex industrial wastewater.
Discusses the properties, mechanisms, advantages, limitations and promising solutions of different types of membrane technologies
Addresses the optimization of process parameters
Describes the performance of different membranes
Presents the potential of Nanotechnology to improve the treatment efficiency of wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs)
Covers the application of membrane and membrane-based hybrid treatment technologies for wastewater treatment
Includes forward osmosis, electrodialysis, and diffusion dialysis
Considers hybrid membrane systems expanded to cover zero liquid discharge, salt recovery, and removal of trace contaminants
Engineers, scientists and managers who require knowledge to the principles of wastewater treatment processes. Students on Environmental Biotechnology/Microbiology. Different professionals working or interested in the Environmental Microbiology or Bioremediation field

Susana Rodríguez-Couto (female) got her B.Sc. and M.Sc. in Chemistry (Industrial Chemistry) from the University of Santiago de Compostela in 1992 and her Ph.D. in Chemistry in 1999 from the University of Vigo, obtaining the maximal grade (magna cum laude) and, in addition, she was awarded with the Extraordinary Prize for Doctoral Thesis in Chemistry. She worked as an Associate Professor and an Isidro Parga Pondal Senior Researcher at the University of Vigo (2000-2004), as a Ramón y Cajal Senior Researcher at Rovira i Virgili University (2004-2008) and as an Ikerbasque Research Professor (2009-2019). She has also worked as an Invited Researcher at the Institute from Environmental Biotechnology, Graz University of Technology (Austria) and at the Department of Biological Engineering, University of Minho (Portugal). In 2008, she received the I3 Professor from the Spanish Ministry of Science and Education to the recognition of an outstanding research activity. In March 2021 she is joining LUT School of Engineering Science at Mikkeli, Finland, as a Full Professor in biological water treatment. She has published more than 140 articles in highly reputed international journals (h index 42). She is editor of several journals (3Biotech, Frontiers) and 14 Elsevier books.
