ImagineMembrane will be highly interactive will ample time for discussing science.

Invited speakers will present their view and perspective on currently hot topics in membrane science and technology, followed by Sessions chairs leading the open discussion. There are no parallel sessions and it is not original data that are in the foreground but the discussion of concepts. In this context, ImagineMembrane hopes to complement the regular conferences of the membrane community.

Particularly young researchers are strongly encouraged to participate and bring in their views.

This years’s edition of Imagine Membrane will, amongst others, comprise the topics

  • Routes to make membrane fabrication more sustainable – how “green” can it get?
  • Membrane recycling and reuse
  • Additive manufacturing for membrane fabrication
  • 2D Membrane materials
  • Biomimicking and bioinspired membranes
  • Efficient routes to carbon capture and conversión
  • Challenges in desalination and blue energy
  • At Imagine Membrane, topics are discussed with ample time and in a highly interactive manner such as to be able to go well beyond the standard conference format and define both a scientific and industrial perspective on the future challenges and opportunties in membrane science and technology.
