Scope of Symposium

Energy, water, affordable healthcare and global warming are four major concerns globally resulting from resource depletion, record high oil prices, clean water shortages, high costs of pharmaceuticals, and changing climate conditions. Among many potential solutions, advances in membrane materials and fabrication technology are one of the most direct, effective and feasible approaches to solve these sophisticated issues.

This membrane materials and technology session summarizes the state-of-the-art membrane research and development for water reuse and desalination, energy development including biofuels, CO2 capture, pharmaceutical purification and separation, and biomedical applications.

The proposed topics are:

1) Membranes for water reuses and desalination
• Microfiltration and ultrafiltration
• Membrane bioreactors and fouling
• Nano-filtration and RO
• Emerging membrane technologies (membrane distillation, forward osmosis and others)

2) Membranes for energy, gas separation and CO2 capture
• Hydrogen and natural gas purification
• Bioenegry (biogas and biofuel)
• CO2 capture
• Osmotic power

3) Membranes for pharmaceutical separation and biomedical applications
• Protein separation
• Chiral separation
• Biomedical applications

4) Membrane materials and sciences
• Mixed matrix membranes
• Pervaporation
• Membrane formation
• Membrane characterization
