XIII Scientific Conference
“Membranes and Membrane Processes
in Environmental Protection”
17th – 20th of June 2020
Zakopane, POLAND


Faculty of Energy and Environmental Engineering

Membrane techniques have found a wide range of applications in environmental protection. Thus, the review and coordination current researches are aimed and justified. The active participation of industrial partners who apply membrane processes into the industrial practice is also highly desired. It has all been revealed by a series of membrane conferences regularly organized since 1995.

The aim of the conference is to sum up the recent progress in application of membrane processes mainly in environmental protection, but also in other branches of industry.

The main topics discussed during conference’s sessions are:
- production and characteristics of membranes due to their further application in environmental protection,
- modelling of membrane processes and other engineering concepts,
- desalination of water and wastewater with the use of membrane techniques,
- membranes in water and wastewater treatment technology,
- hybrid membrane processes,
- pervaporation, membrane distillation and gas separation,
- fuel cells,
- application of membranes in biotechnology,
- membranes in environmental monitoring,
- membrane reactors,
- membrane removal of micropollutants from various environmental species.
