The aim of this course is to make students familiar with the basic principles of the progressive membrane processes. They receive an increasing attention especially during the last few decades. After brief introduction focused on the basic membrane materials production and characterization the attention will be paid mainly to the separation processes. Both pressure as well as electric field driven processes are considered. Provided theoretical information will be documented on the examples of the industrial processes. In the final part of the course the issue of the fuel cells technology will be discussed as well.
