2009 China-EU International Summit on Membrane Engineering in Water Treatments and Reuse
, [Haiyue Jianguo Hotel] Weihai, China
WEIHAI, Shandong, China, 1-3 NOV 2009 – Increasing volume of wastewater treated in China is expected to reach 70% in 2010. The market demand of water treatment in China is approaching a peak development period where innovations in water treatment and membrane technologies will be further promoted by enhancing international cooperation of the development of the membrane industry.
The fourth China-EU Summit on Membrane Engineering in Water Treatments and Reuse that took place 1-3 November in Weihai, China was organized by Noppen (Shanghai) Co., Ltd, Harbin Institute of Technology, and National Engineering Research Center of Urban Water Resouces; and co-organized by Weihai Foreign Exchange Center of Science and Technology, Italy Membrane Technology Research Institute, Membrane Industry Association of China, China Urban Water Association and China-EU Membrane Technology Research Institute.
Noted speakers include Enrico Drioli, Honorary Director of EU Institute on Membrane Technology, discussing membrane engineering in water treatment and desalination and integrated membrane processes; Giorno Lidietta, Director of EU Institute on Membrane Technology, covering membrane bioreactors in industrial processes; Li Kang, Professor at Imperial College of London, Department of Chemical Engineering; Frank Lipnizk of Alfalfaval; Immaculada Ortiz, Professor at Universidad de Santander (Spain); Alfredo Cassano of Italy Membrane Technology Research Institute; and Li Jianxin of Tianjin Polytechnic University.
Topics covered membrane technology application in wastewater treatment, industrial application of membrane technology, nanofiltration and pervaporation in waste water treatment, polymeric membranes, and cooperation at the Sino-EU Membrane Technology Development and Research Center (Weihai).
