The conference will address the progress in membrane engineering and its strong relation with the process intensification strategy. Topics such as integrated membrane operations; new membrane operations such as membrane contactors and catalytic membrane reactors will be featured and industrial contributions will be emphasized. In addition, water desalination, exergetic analysis of membrane operations and of integrated processes will be also covered. There will be discussion on the existing limits of membrane engineering and future possible developments in new non-traditional areas interfacing electronics, medicine, etc.
The conference chair is Professor Enrico Drioli (Institute on Membrane Technology (ITM-CNR), University of Calabria.
The Scientific committee has the following members: Enrico Drioli (Italy), Pierre Aimar (France), Giuseppe Barbieri (Italy), Rune Bredesen (Norway), May Britt-Hagg (Norway), Tony Fane (Australia), Benny Freeman (USA), Rafiqul Gani (Denmark), Lidietta Giorno (Italy), Dieter Hofmann (Germany), Gunnar Jonsson (Sweden), Bill Koros (USA), Kew-Ho Lee (Korea), Runyu Ma (China), Don Paul (USA), Gerard Pourcelly (France), Gilbert Rios (France), Jesus Santamaria (Spain), Andrzej Stankiewicz (Netherlands), Doros Theodoru (Greece), Gun Tragardh (Sweden), and Matthias Wessling (Netherlands).
