Over the past two decades membrane technology has shown great potential towards replacing conventional processes owing to the numerous advantages that this technology holds (Brunetti et al., 2010; Cassano et al., 2003; Charpentier, 2005; Gugliuzza and Drioli, 2014; Judd and Judd, 2006). It permits working under mild temperatures and pressure while avoiding the use of additives or solvents (Drioli and Giorno, 2009). They practically have the potential to intensify multi-stage unit operations into a single-step process that eventually comes with a significantly reduced footprint (Drioli and Romano, 2001).
