Used for everything from purifying a liquid product, or recovering a solid product from a gas or liquid solvent, to environmental applications such as air-pollution control and wastewater treatment, filtration is arguably one of the most widely used unit operations in the chemical process industries (CPI). As a result, no single filtration technology dominates the CPI. Instead, a wide variety of application-specific methods are constantly being developed and improved upon to handle a smaller class of filtration issues.

Recent developments are presented here, including General Trends, Improved Cartridge Design, Automated Self-Cleaning, Corrosion Resistance, and Water And Wastewater Treatment.
