Backed by Dairy Foods magazine and American Dairy Products Institute (ADPI), the Membrane Technology Forum 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. The program features a series of two dedicated educational tracks each with short, informative technical sessions covering current topics and emerging trends. Attendees will gain fresh ideas, trusted data and proactive solutions to help their companies evolve with the changing trends in membrane technology.

This year the Membrane Technology Forum will be held online for the first time on 14-17 June 2021. We are proud to announce that Kevin van Koerten, Project Manager Processing will present ‘Membrane screening: the link between idea and industrial realization of membrane processes‘, during the session ‘Process Optimization & Best Practices in use of Membrane Technology’ on the 15th of June 2021, 11.30-12.00 PM CST.

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.

Any questions?

Kevin van Koerten is happy to answer all your questions.
