Advanced functional materials in water treatment applications

 

Convener: Christopher Arnusch, BGU


Advances in water treatment technology are supported by innovation in materials and exploration of non-conventional approaches to address the still unmet challenges. The concept of structured or functional materials and surfaces in environmental technology is a concept that might impact new emerging water treatment technologies. Accepted topics can include for example, advanced functional materials in membrane and separation technology designed to address challenges such as (bio)fouling, concentration polarisation, selectivity, and resource harvesting.
