Welcome Note

Membrane Science 2018 welcomes you to the Iconic City of London, UK!!!


Allied Academies invites you to the Iconic city of London, UK for the 2nd International Conference on Membrane Science and Technology during September 13-14, 2018. The congress is themed “Membrane Science as a Pluridisciplinary Science for Everyone in the World” which is designed to provide a platform for best discussion and networking as well as feat the new developments related to the application of Membrane technology to numerous fields related to industries like bio-technology and pharmaceuticals.The conference sessions will focus on topics mentioned below:

Track 1: Membranes

Membrane processes can cover a wide range of separation problems with an exact membrane being required for every problem. Membranes may differ expressively in their structure and therefore in their functionality. To know what membrane to use in a particular separation process, different membranes must be characterized in terms of structure and mass transport properties. Because very different membranes are used, dissimilar techniques are required for characterization. Membrane characterization is a very important part of membrane research and progress because the design of membrane processes and systems depends on reliable data concerning to membrane properties. A membrane reactor is a physical device that combines a chemical adaptation process with a membrane separation process to add reactants or remove products of the reaction. Chemical reactors making use of membranes are usually referred to as membrane reactors. The membrane can be used for different tasks i.e. Separation, Selective removal of reactants, Retention of the catalyst and Distribution of a reactant and etc.

Track 2: Membranes and Technology

Membrane technology has developed a distinguished separation technology over the past decennia. The main force of membrane technology is the fact that it works without the addition of chemicals, with a relatively low energy use and easy and well-arranged process conductions. Furthermore, using membranes enables separations to take place that would be impossible using thermal separation methods. It will include Emerging membrane science and technology. The membrane separation process is based on the presence of semi permeable membranes.

Track 3:  Membranes for Water & Wastewater

Membranes increasingly are being used in wastewater treatment. They can be used as pretreatment for reverse osmosis or in tertiary filtration. Membrane bioreactors are used as an essential part of wastewater treatment, creating high quality water for reuse. This article examines the regulatory drivers behind today’s increased membrane use, types of applications and design considerations in wastewater treatment, and the development of membrane technologies. Submerged and side stream membrane bioreactors in wastewater treatment plants are the most developed filtration based membrane reactors.

Track 4: Bio-Tech & Bio-Med Applications of Membranes

Membranes have always been an integral part of biotechnology processes. Polymer membranes' preparation, functionalization and applications in biotechniques including affinity membrane chromatography, membrane-based biosensor and membrane-based bioreactor. Integrating the properties of synthetic membranes with biological catalysts such as cells and enzymes forms the basis of an exciting new technology called membrane bioreactors. Medical applications of artificial membranes. Specific consideration is given to drug delivery systems, artificial organs and tissue engineering which seem to control the interest of the membrane community this period.  Medical membrane market has viewed unprecedented growth over the last few periods owing to its increased uses in various industries such as pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, healthcare and many more.

Track 5: Membranes in Industries

Membrane technologies are progressively becoming useful components of pharmaceutical production processes. Membrane separation technologies of reverse osmosis, ultrafiltration and microfiltration have been used to concentrate and purify both small and large molecules. Membranes can be used for Industrial Wastewater Recovery and Re-use. These can be used in Food and Beverage Industries, Pharmaceutical Industries, Chemical and Mechanical industries and Biotechnology Industries etc.

Track 6: Gas and Vapor Separation

Many plants and industries use vapor-permeable membrane to permeate the extra condensable vapor, often in aggregation with a second process such as condensation or absorption. The compressed feed gas is sent to a condenser. On cooling the gas, a portion of the propylene is detached as condensed liquid. The residual uncondensed propylene is detached by the membrane system to produce a 99% nitrogen stream. The propylene-enriched permeate gas is recycled to the incoming feed gas. The liquid propylene condensate contains some dissolved nitrogen, which is removed by flashing to a lower pressure. The development of vapor/gas separation technology and its emergence as a recognized sector of the membrane separation business.

Track 7: Ion exchange and electrically driven processes

Ion-exchange membranes transportation dissolved ions across a conductive polymeric membrane. The membranes are frequently used in desalination and chemical recovery applications, moving ions from one solution to another with little passage of water. Ion-exchange membranes are usually used in electrodialysis or diffusion dialysis by means of an electrical potential or concentration gradient, correspondingly, to selectivity transport cationic and anionic species. Electrically driven membrane processes, and electrodialysis in particular, are significant unit operations, especially within the field of desalination - making tab water from sea water. Electrically driven membrane processes will be presented. Important terms such as current density and current efficiency, critical desalination degree will be defined through illustrations and a large amount of samples.

Track 8: Separation Processes using Membranes

The membrane separation processes to be measured here include the familiar liquid processes: nanofiltration, reverse osmosis and ultrafiltration microfiltration, but also include the less familiar fluid separation processes of pervaporation, gas/gas separation (or gas permeation), vapour permeation and electrodialysis. A key feature of the bulk chemical sector is that all these membrane separation processes can be found in it. It is important to note that reverse osmosis and nanofiltration are not filtration processes in the normally accepted sense of the word, i.e. a separation of fluid from suspended solid particles or liquid droplets whereby the fluid passes without change of phase through a barrier by means of pores that are continuous from one side of the barrier to the other, and whose size is such as to hold back the particles of droplets.

Track 9: New Membrane Materials and New Trends

Polymeric membranes have been used successfully in worldwide and these membranes have been used in many industrial applications. The uses of polymeric membranes in industries are primary the result of two types of developments i.e. Membranes material and Membranes structure. Research on membrane science and technology has undergone a tremendous increase along the last 20 years.
