Process modeling and simulation have extensively been used for the design, control, optimal operation, and improvement of chemical processes. The use of simulation in the preliminary phases of the process design can lead to significant cost and waste reduction of the real process. Process simulators are efficient tools that facilitate the simulation procedure. However, different to unit operations in which separation is determined by equilibrium, the description of the performance of the membrane units is based many times on empirical data or specific models that are not usually included in a conventional process simulator.
This Special Issue is devoted to the state of the art of modeling and simulation techniques applied to processes including membranes. It covers all the aspects associated to the simulation procedure from the microscale to the coupled process, with special interest in the integration of the membrane model with other units in processes involving recirculation. Purely membrane processes are also welcome when the focus lies in the simulation procedures of the behavior of the industrial scale process. The modeling and simulation of hybrid units including membranes such as membrane reactors also falls within the scope of the issue. Valuable application examples and reviews are also welcome.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Membranes is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2700 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
