15th Aachener Membran Kolloquium
The biennial ' Aachener Membran Kolloquium ' (AMK), organised by the Chair of Chemical Process Engineering at RWTH Aachen University, continues to be the international conference on industrial membrane applications.
As Hartmut Brüschke, formerly Sulzer Chemtech and a true membrane pioneer puts it, "the AMK is still the best opportunity to catch up on new developments and trends of today's booming membrane industry" . While most other conferences tend to focus much on materials science and others specialize on specific membrane technologies , the AMK tries to bring together people from a broad range of backgrounds with the aim of interdisciplinary knowledge exchange on membrane innovations . The topics of the presentations will be a well-balanced mixture discussing membranes in water treatment , gas separation, solvent recovery, process engineering, energy applications, biotechnology and health. The development of new membranes will be treated as well as operational experiences and module design with an emphasis of industrial relevance.
The lecture program will be accompanied by a sizeable industrial exhibition, a large number of posters and time for valuable discussion.
