Australian membrane workshop set for June 2010
16 Mar 10 by desalination
The Australian Water Association (AWA) is to hold a Membrane Cluster Workshop in conjunction with the Commonwealth Scientific & Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) on 9 June 2010 in Sydney.
How do membranes work to turn seawater into drinking water by desalination or reuse sewage and other wastewater streams? Which membranes are more reliable, yield higher quality water or remove recalcitrant chemicals but without demanding lots of energy to drive them?
Questions like these will form the basis of the workshop, which will provide an excellent opportunity for two-way exchange between research teams and potential end-users of their research. It is also an opportunity for water industry participants to gain a better understanding and insight into the future directions of applications for water treatment, contaminant removal and achieving superior plant performance.
Universities taking part will include Victoria University, RMIT, University of Queensland, Murdoch University, Monash University, Curtin University, UNSW, Deakin University and Melbourne University. Presenters will be Prof Julien Gray, professor of computational chemistry and ARC professorial fellow theoretical chemistry program leader, Curtin University; and Manh Hoang, who joined CSIRO in 1985 and now leads the Water for a Healthy Country’s Advanced Water Treatment Project.
