...Some Key Topics


Different water applications for membranes and membrane processes

  • Drinking water treatment
  • Domestic wastewater treatment and reuse
  • Industrial wastewater treatment, recycling and reuse
  • Desalination and brine disposal
  • Produced water
  • Water for remote places
  • Water production at the point of use 

Conventional and innovative membranes and pro- cesses for water, including

  • Hybrid membrane processes (membrane bioreactors, ozonation and membrane,...)
  • Membrane distillation and other membrane contactors
  • New membranes and module design
  • Novel configurations in membrane processes

Fundamentals of membrane processes for water treatment

  • Membrane fouling/scaling mechanisms, control and prevention
  • Process modeling and simulation
  • Membrane integrity and retention of emerging pollutants

Membranes in the water and energy nexus and for sustainability

  • Energy efficiency in water production and treatment
  • Water production by renewable energies
  • Resource recovery using membrane processes
  • Towards Zero liquid discharge
  • Life cycle analysis and environmental optimisation of membrane processes




Special session on MBR modelling supported by IWA Task Group on MBR modelling and control

This special session on modelling MBR is supported by the IWA Task Group on MBR modelling and control.

The objects of the special session are: i) exchange information on current knowledge on membranes for wastewater treatment; ii) identify gaps in knowledge in Membrane Technology; iii) examine new methods for wastewater treatment by means of membranes; and iv) create a forum for  promoting the discussion amongst scientists, professionals and academia.
