advanced membranes for
effective water treatment
A changing world gives rise to new challenges. New pollutants and the increasing need for water reuse in all sorts of sectors require the development of new highly efficient membranes. This session we get to know the forefront of membrane development and use. We’ll learn about new membrane materials to sort similar ions, to make use of self-assembly to create very well-defined nano-structures, and in what ways membranes can be produced more efficiently and sustainably.
