Abstract: Organic solvents are commonly present in chemical effluents and are considered hazardous waste due to their impact on environment and human health. According to the first principle of green chemistry, it is better to prevent waste than to treat or clean up waste after it has been created. However, when the avoidance of hazardous waste is not viable, on-site recycling becomes of major priority. Membrane operations such as pervaporation (PV) and micellar-enhanced ultrafiltration (ME-UF) are green alternatives for the segregation of these chemicals. The valuable compounds can be recycled and/or re-used within the process. As a consequence not only the need for virgin material is reduced but also the hazard and impact of the chemical effluents.
