3rd International Conference on Desalination using Membrane Technology

Conference

fromdu 02 April 2017 toau 05 April 2017

Organized by:Organisé par :
Elsevier,

Location of event:Lieu de l’événement : Las Palmas, Gran Canaria, Spain

More info:Plus d’infos : URL

Description :
There is an urgent and increasing need for better provision of clean water of drinking quality on a worldwide basis. The lack of clean water is the direct cause of millions of deaths every year in poorer countries, while in most affluent countries the demand for such water is continuously increasing. Thus, the development of new means to produce drinking water is a high priority for international organisations, governments and research agencies.

Sustainable development of effective desalination processes can make a major contribution to meeting the demand for drinking water, and membrane desalination is the most promising of the new approaches. However, the technology raises a number of energy efficiency as well as environmental and sustainability issues which will also be covered in this conference.

The 3rd International Conference on Desalination using Membrane Technology will allow the dissemination and discussion of cutting edge research. The scope will include theoretical and applied research, technological and industrial development. Participants will include leading academic researchers, scientists and engineers from membrane desalination and associated industries as well as representatives of government organizations, international agencies and aid organizations.

A series of interactive steps enables you to identify what you have, to set priorities, evaluate material needs, program and design storage strategies, and implement and monitor the preservation of film collections. Using the website’s resources, you will be able to analyze survey results, to evaluate the benefits of any storage on film stability, to choose between alternative approaches, to implement an appropriate preservation strategy, and most importantly, to proactively monitor your collection’s state of preservation over time.
