CHAPTER 6

Magnetically Assisted Separations in Chemical Industry and Biotechnology: Basic Principles and Applications

Magnetic separation techniques performed in gas–solid and liquid–solid systems are encountered in chemical engineering and biotechnology. The chapter considers separations based on magnetically-assisted fluidized beds, techniques utilizing non-tailored magnetic particles, magnetically-assisted sedimentation, applications of functionalized particles, all of them applicable either in the stages of technologies or in environmental applications. As a new topic, never reviewed before, gas enrichment by magnetic membranes is analyzed.
