From the 8th to the 10th of April 2019, the Engineering with Membranes Conference 2019 took place in Båstad (Sweden). Luca Ansaloni from SINTEF presented the work done in the Genesis project about iPOSS membranes.
Since 25 years, this conference has been a successful event series for membrane researchers interested in the engineering aspects of membrane science. In the last years, it traveled to Asia – Beijing (2015) and Singapore (2017). The focus of this edition of ‘Engineering with Membranes’ will be on ‘Membranes for a sustainable future’. Thus, the current conference will emphasize how membrane processes can help to achieve the 17 sustainability goals developed by the United Nations. The conference, thus welcomes papers dedicated to the sustainable manufacturing, design and application of membrane and membranes processes. In particular papers related to the development and integration of membranes processes in the food, biorefinery and biotech industry are welcomed. The conference schedule is designed to provide an inspiring event with key speeches combined with oral and poster presentations but also time and space for meetings and stimulating discussions.
