Membrane Technology Forum

Membrane Technology Forum

The Membrane Technology Forum, taking place between June 9 and 11th,  is the premier live event in the commercial membrane and membrane technology sector. This event covers the most important concepts and ideas from the fundamentals of membrane technology, fouling and cleaning to emerging new technologies and applications with real world case studies discussing the problems, proposed solutions you can use today and final results. The Membrane Technology Forum is the go-to source for processors, plant managers, engineers, chemists, equipment manufacturers, research & development, sales & marketing specialists, technicians and many others.

NIZO’s Kevin van Koerten will present on Membrane Screening: The Link Between Idea And Industrial Realization Of Membrane Processes

The application of membranes in food processes is increasing, also being applied to a growing varied of product streams. This also brings with it many challenges and unknowns, like fouling, low fluxes and sub-optimal separation leading to excess waste. NIZO applies a standardized selection and optimization procedure allowing for informed decision making on membrane investments. The trajectory includes practical tests to screen separation performance of multiple membranes, consequent evaluation of fouling and flux behavior in pressurized systems and a simulation based optimization procedure to determine optimal setup and dimensions. This gives in depth insight in the performance, CAPEX and OPEX investments of a membrane installation and ensuring an optimal system from the start.

Contact Peter Heusinkveld to set-up a meeting on the topic during the event, or earlier if required.
