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

Bryjak, Marek
Professor Marek Bryjak is working at Wroclaw University of Technology since 1982 where he graduated in 1977, received his PhD in 1982 and awarded DSc degree in 2001 for studies on application of polymers to separation processes. He underwent post-doc fellowship at Centre for Surface Science, Lehigh University USA in 1989-1991 and later visited universities in Chile, Czech Rep, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Japan, the Netherlands, Portugal, Russia, Slovakia, South Africa, Spain, Turkey, UK, Ukraine and USA. He was the Head of Department of Speciality Polymers and Department of Polymer and Carbon Materials. He was the President of Membrane Section, Polish Chemical Society and was one of the initiators of the Permea conference - the meeting of academia and industry membranologists' from Central European and other countries. He is the member of European Center for Innovation and Technology and Center of Advanced Materials and Nanotechnology. Professor Bryjak authored and co-authored about 70 scientific papers, 6 chapters and edited two books. He supervised 5 PhD and 75 MSc theses, gave about 60 invited lectures and participated in 12 projects.

His scientific interest is focused on development of methods for formation of polymer membranes or/and their surface modification (preferably by plasma treatment), preparation and evaluation of new separation materials, and implementation of these materials to water technology.
Hilal, Nidal
