The 6th IWA Regional Conference on Membrane Technology
Mon, 10 Dec 2018 –
Wed, 12 Dec 2018
Over the past few decades tremendous achievements have been made in the field of membrane technology for water and waste-water treatment. Currently, membranes are opening up a new era for waste water treatment and water reuse, have become the most economical technology to desalinate brackish and seawater, and are an important technology that can provide barrier to protect public health when treating water for drinking purpose. With a huge coast line, the market for membrane technology in India is big. It has become one of the most active countries in scientific research and industrial applications.
As membrane technologies are competitive, the exchange of information and cross-collaboration between experts, scientists and practitioners are fundamental necessity to develop membrane processes &advancemembrane based treatment.
Following Moscow (2008), Istanbul (2010), Buenos Aries (2012), Ho Chi Minh City (2014) and Kunming City (2016), Vadodara will be the meeting point for the 6th IWA Regional Conference on Membrane Technology in 2018. We cordially invite you to Vadodara to participate in this Conference as this event will once again provide a platform for participants to present results of their latest research, share industrial experiences, exchange opinions and to expand horizons in the development of membrane technologies. It will also facilitate strengthening close professional linkages among membranologists and water professionals.
Vadodara, known for its cosmopolitan culture, is known as the 'Culture Capital' of Gujarat State, one of the 29 States of India. We look forward to meeting you in December 2018. With you and all the members of the organizing committee and the internationalscientificcommittee we will make this conference a great success.
About the Conference
This conference aims to advance the knowledge and share experiences on membrane technology for water and wastewater treatment. It will provide an opportunity for water researchers, engineers and experts from colleges, institutes and firms to exchange information and results on the newest developments and applications of membrane technology.
This event is being jointly organized under the aegis of International Water Association (IWA) by Indian Membrane Society, The Maharaja Sayajirao University of Baroda & Indian Institute of Chemical Engineers. This conference will cover all the aspects of membrane technologies covering a broad spectrum of studies wherever membranes are used. These will include new membrane materials, membrane fouling, mechanism of membrane fouling and its control, membrane processes and their optimization, desalination and its studies for potable water production, waste-water treatment, effluent water treatment, river water rejuvenation using membrane technologies, resource recovery from waste-water treatment, membrane bio reactors,membrane based technologies in other industries like dairy industry.
Plenary talks by leading scientists will be delivered. A number of invited talks and selected oral presentations based on novelty are being planned. Best presentation awards for PhD students are also being organized. A separate session for participants from industry is planned to provide them a platform for discussing and sharing their experience on new membrane technologies.
