Reportlinker Adds 2010 Membrane and Separation Technology Research Review

Dec 14, 2010, 13:46 ET from Reportlinker

NEW YORK, Dec. 14, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:

2010 Membrane and Separation Technology Research Review

http://www.reportlinker.com/p0341169/2010-Membrane-and-Separation-Technology-Research-Review.html

FOREWORD 

Membrane and separation technologies are as diverse as the myriad applications they are called upon to operate in: biotech separation and biomedical applications through to large-scale industrial applications in the water and wastewater processing, and the food and drink industries. Costs have continued to drop while advanced materials, particularly nanocomposite polymers, have continued to report for duty.

This is a behind the scenes technology that makes a very obvious difference to the quality of life, both generally speaking, and more specifically in fresh water constrained geographies.

This Membrane and separation technologies review provides a sampling of the type of quantitative market information, analysis and guidance that has been aiding business decision making since BCC was founded in 1971. It includes highlights of reports published in 2010 on the following membrane and separation markets:

Controlled-Release Technologies: Established and Emerging Markets  

The Global Market for Membrane Microfiltration 

Membrane Technology for Liquid And Gas Separations 

Ultrafiltration Membranes: Technologies and the U.S. Market 

Seawater and Brackish Water Desalination
