Membrane Distillation
Membrane distillation (MD) is an emerging technology
which attracted a lot of interest in the last years but
did not commercialise on large scale until today. A
significant increase of research activities is visible due
to rising number of publications and conference shares
and a few companies already focus their business on
this technology. A number of pilot units are already in
field operation.
The intention of the seminar is to provide a comprehensive overview on MD from theoretical background
to practical applications and to bring together researchers, MD system and component producers and
companies who are potential applicants for MD technology.
The seminar will provide details on the physics behind
MD and show the advantages and limitations of the
process. Possibilities for process optimization will be
shown as well as the impact of membrane parameters.
Practical results from the lab and from the field will be
provided and potential applications for industrial use of
MD will be discussed.
