Advances in Separation and Purification Techniques
With the increasing demand for environmental measures such as SDGs (sustainability development goals) and carbon neutrality, the importance of supplying a safe and stable resource supply is increasing. Efficient and highly accurate separation and purification technologies are indispensable for recovering useful resources with a low environmental load from difficult-to-treat ores and spent materials. In addition, effective separation technology for wastewater and exhaust gas generated in various resource refining processes is also indispensable. To accomplish them, we need the best mix of physical, physicochemical, and chemical separation technologies. It is also important to develop innovative separation technologies based on new ideas.
This Special Issue invites a wide range of research topics on innovative separation and purification technologies for utilizing unused resources and spent materials and environmental purification.
