Inaugural Joint Webinar of AIChE and The North American Membrane Society (NAMS).

Use of membranes for gas and water purification is increasing. There are many good reasons for this including low energy use, a small footprint and relative mechanical simplicity. In 60 minutes you’ll gain a better understanding of membrane technology and why you should consider it as an alternative to conventional separation technologies.

This webinar provides a solid overview of why and how membranes work. It looks at current applications of membrane technology in the types of separation processes employed in many plants. Whether your work is in process engineering or you are exploring R&D applications using membranes this webinar will enable you to consider how membranes can improve your operations.

Take a Look at Your Agenda

  • Review the fundamental science of small molecule (e.g., gas, water, and ions) transport in membranes
  • Examine membrane use in different separation processes including gas separations, reverse osmosis desalination and electrodialysis
  • Look at current examples of uses of membrane use in the above-mentioned applications
  • Explore the design of membrane materials and trends in the design of new membrane materials
