The American Membrane Technology Association is to hold a Technology Transfer Workshop in Des Moines, Iowa.

The workshop on 15-17 July 2013 is titled Membranes Across The Midwest and will focus on the basics of water treatment membranes, including low, medium, and high pressure membrane systems, microfiltration/ultrafiltration (UF) design considerations, regional applications, and reverse osmosis (RO) troubleshooting.

Supported by the International Desalination Association and the American Water Works Association, it will feature a facility visit to the Saylorville Water Treatment Plant (WTP), which features both UF and RO, and an evening riverboat cruise.

Papers will be presented on the Central Iowa Water Association’s RO Plant, Keokuk Municipal Waterworks WTP, Sioux City’s Southbridge Regional Water Treatment Plant and Emmons County WTP. Other contributions will come from H2O Innovation, Avista Technologies, CDM Smith, Harn R/O Systems, GE, MWH, Black & Veatch and Carollo Engineers.
