Workshop "Membranes for water treatment and reuse" 15th June in Girona

UdG Scientifical and Technological Park, Auditori Jaume Casademont

This workshop will disseminate several R&D&I projects focused on the application of membrane technologies to drinking water treatment, wastewater treatment and water reuse. Particularly, the results of LEQUIA projects SSAMBRA and OMBReuse funded under TECNIOSPRING programme will be presented.

 

Objectives:

  • Present innovative research projects on water and wastewater treatment and reuse.
  • Disseminate real case studies and new improvements on membrane manufacturing.
  • Explore the motivation and the constraints of companies for developing business plans for membranes’ water and wastewater systems.
  • Promote exchange and networking between all stakeholders: membrane manufacturers, membrane users and scientific researchers.

 

TECNIOspring is an international mobility fellowship programme that offers experienced researchers the possibility to develop an applied research project in any R&D entity around the world. Host institutions can be entities recognised with the TECNIO accreditation or, in the new TECNIOspring+ programme, companies based in Catalonia.

 

SSAMBRA project seeks to strengthen Smart Air MBR® applications and to achieve both energy and fouling reduction in membrane bioreactors. Smart Air MBR® is an automatic control system that regulates the air scour flow required to physically clean the membranes and monitors its effect on the process. Host entities: LEQUIA-UdG and Polymem.

 

OMBReuse project aims at optimizing osmotic membrane bioreactor (OMBR) to render it economically attractive while assuring a water quality satisfying drinking standards to support water reuse scheme. Host entity: LEQUIA-UdG.

 

Elevator pitch session. For those interested, a time slot will be reserved for elevator presentations (5 minutes), where membrane technology providers and users will have the opportunity to present new developments or case studies. If you would like to give a presentation, please, let us know.

 

Registration. Registration is free (and includes conference material, coffee breaks and lunch) but the number of attendants is limited. “First come, first serve” rule applies; registration will take place on the order of enrolment. Deadline for registration: 14th June. You can register by sending an E-Mail to registration@lequia.udg.cat or register directly on this website.

 

Venue. Parc Científic i Tecnològic de la UdG, Auditori Jaume Casademont, Pic de Peguera, 15, 17003 Girona.
