There is an urgent and increasing need for better provision of clean water of drinking quality on a worldwide basis. The lack of clean water is the direct cause of millions of deaths every year in poorer countries, while in most affluent countries the demand for such water is continuously increasing. Thus, the development of new means to produce drinking water is a high priority for international organisations, governments and research agencies.

Sustainable development of effective desalination processes can make a major contribution to meeting the demand for drinking water, and membrane desalination is the most promising of the new approaches. However, the technology raises a number of energy efficiency as well as environmental and sustainability issues which will also be covered in this conference.

The 3rd International Conference on Desalination using Membrane Technology will allow the dissemination and discussion of cutting edge research. The scope will include theoretical and applied research, technological and industrial development. Participants will include leading academic researchers, scientists and engineers from membrane desalination and associated industries as well as representatives of government organizations, international agencies and aid organizations.

Topics will include:

Reverse osmosis
Nanofiltration, ultrafiltration, microfiltration
Aquaporin membranes
Pre-treatment and post-treatment processes
Novel desalination technologies
Membrane distillation
New membrane types
Forward osmosis
Pressure-retarded osmosis
Other technologies
Membrane systems
Hybrid systems
Module design
Novel membrane systems and configurations
Brine/concentrate disposal and waste management
Energy and sustainability
Economics
Case studies
