M1: Water and wastewater treatment with membrane technology in South Africa and Sweden – Status and Perspectives

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
The aim of this workshop is to provide an update on the latest development of membrane technology for water and wastewater treatment in South Africa and Sweden. For this the workshop will not only provide information on key projects like the world largest membrane bioreactor for municipal wastewater treatment under construction in Stockholm but also new trends e.g. direct membrane filtration for wastewater treatment and new projects e.g. EU-REWAISE project investigating the harvesting of rain and storm water. Furthermore, in the discussions the workshop will provide a forum to explore and start new collaborations and joint projects.
