IWA SG “Membrane Technology”

We are honoured to invite you to the 8th International Water Association (IWA) Membrane Technology Conference & Exhibition for Water and Wastewater Treatment and Reuse (IWA-MTC 2017), which will be held in Singapore from 5 to 9 September 2017.

IWA-MTC is the conference & exhibition series of the IWA Specialist Group “Membrane Technology”, one of the largest Specialist Groups inside IWA, covering the entire range of water-related membrane technology. Membranes play a major role in producing high quality drinking water and overcoming water shortage challenges faced by many countries in the world through water reuse and desalination. Tremendous achievements have been made in the field of membrane technology for water and wastewater treatment in the last decades, and membrane technology continues to progress at a fast pace, generating many new breakthroughs through research and development. Also, membranes will play a key role in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), both in water supply and in Sanitation.

Singapore is proud to host the IWA-MTC for the first time. This event is organized by the Centre for Water Research at the National University of Singapore (CWR@NUS) and the Environmental Engineering Society of Singapore (EESS), and is supported by PUB, Singapore’s national water agency, and the Singapore Exhibition and Convention Bureau.

The 8th IWA-MTC brings together scientists and application engineers and provides a unique and vibrant platform for the gathering of professionals of the whole membrane community. Besides the technical presentations and discussions, delegates will have opportunities to view exhibitions and technical sites showcasing the latest state-of-the-art membrane technology. Share knowledge of the latest developments in membrane research and membrane application, deepen existing contacts and establish new and close professional linkages at the conference and the exhibition. This unique event will also bring together communities of different disciplines having membrane interests on fundamentals, engineering and applied aspects of membranes or associated sustainable water and wastewater treatment and reuse, please see the conference topics.

We look forward to seeing you at the IWA-MTC2017 in Singapore.
