The first large application was used to separate U235 from U238, but membranes became economically feasible only in the 1980s with some applications for the separation of H2, acid gases CO2/CH4 and N2 production from air (Pandey and Chauhan, 2001). indd 11 8/5/11 10:45:03 AM 12 Advanced membrane science and technology older gas separation methods. In a gas separation, a membrane is selective because some components permeate much more rapidly than others; the more permeable gas is called fast gas and it is the one enriched in the permeate flow.

The Ashkelon SWRO desalination plant in Israel is the largest in the world (Kronenberg, 2004). The project was developed as a BOT (build-operatetransfer). The typical single-pass SWRO system consists of the following steps and components: • • • • • • • intake pretreatment high pressure pump membrane assembly remineralization and pH adjustment disinfection alarm/control panel. The pump supplies the pressure needed to push water through the membrane, even as the membrane rejects the passage of salt through it.
