3rd Dissemination Workshop of the Nano4Water cluster - Nano - and Membrane-based systems for water treatment

April 17–18, 2013, Dresden, Germany

Call for papers and posters

We cordially invite you to attend the 3rd workshop themed “Nano- and membrane-based systems for water treatment“, which will be organized and housed by Fraunhofer Institute for Ceramic Technologies and Systems IKTS in Dresden.

With your participation we look forward once again to discussing the most important questions in the field of water treatment and purification as this is a main challenge for the current and upcoming generations. Membrane processes, nanosized materials and the combination from both offer a wide range of possibilities and ways for water treatment by means of filtration and catalytic processes. Engineers, designers and managers are invited to lecture on their state-of-the-art developments and future prospects, present specific topics in the poster session or display their products as exhibitor.

The topics of interest include, but are not limited to

  • Nanostructured membranes for advanced water purification
  • Nano-catalysts for water purification
  • Molecularly imprinted materials for organic molecules
  • Bioactive nanoparticles as alternative disinfectants
  • Nanosorbents as separation media in water purification
  • Biomimetic membranes for water treatment
  • Membrane bioreactor (MBR) technology

The organizers of the workshop invite scientists, engineers, educators, ceramists and managers to submit abstracts for oral or poster presentation electronically as a Word file by e-mail to nano4water@ikts.fraunhofer.de not later than February 9, 2013.

Please find more information on the workshop´s webpage.
