Selective separation of oil and water with mesh membranes by capillarity

Yu, Yuanlie; Chen, Hua; Liu, Yun; Craig, Vincent S. J.; Lai, Zhiping


The separation of oil and water from wastewater generated in the oil-production industries, as well as in frequent oil spillage events, is important in mitigating severe environmental and ecological damage. Additionally, a wide arrange of industrial processes require oils or fats to be removed from aqueous systems. The immiscibility of oil and water allows for the wettability of solid surfaces to be engineered to achieve the separation of oil and water through capillarity. Mesh membranes with...[Show more]
