6th IWA Specialist Conference on Membrane Technology for Water & Wastewater Treatment

As demonstrated by the previous membrane technology conferences also its 6th edition 2011 in Aachen will cover the whole range of water related membrane applications and give a platform to present results of the latest research. Therefore it is addressed to everyone involved in water or wastewater treatment with membranes and associated research. The conference date will provide a good opportunity for visitors from all over the world to visit the reuse conference in Barcelona one week earlier as well. Young water professionals are most welcome to participate in the competition for best poster and best presentation awards. A technological exhibition will be included as well, showcasing state-of-the-art membrane technology. At its venue in Aachen the MTC will replace the Aachen conference on water and membranes for 2011. Proposed Themes: Drinking water treatment Municipal wastewater treatment Industrial water treatment Closing water cycles in industry Membranes in water reuse Membrane materials Novel membrane configurations Membrane bioreactors Fouling mechanisms and cleaning strategies Desalination Concentrate treatment Decentralised systems Process modelling and simulation Process optimisation - module design and energy reduction Operational experiences Micropollutants Disinfection
