Generally, gas emissions can be removed using various methods, such as absorption, adsorption, cryogenic distillation, etc. Gas separation via the employment of membranes is noteworthy due to their high energy efficiency and productivity, and effective integration with the plants among the technologies for gas removal. However, there are still information gaps in the fields of membrane preparation and characterization, separation mechanisms, process optimization, and large-scale applications. Based on these ideas, we are inviting authors to submit original research and review papers in a broad range of topics for the Special Issue on “Membranes for Gas Separation”. Experimental and modeling works focused on gas separation using membrane approaches in a wide variety of application fields as well as reviews or technical notes in terms of the emerging and promising technologies on latest developments in gas separation membranes are highly 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 papers will be 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 1000 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.
