Functionalized Antifouling Surfaces in Membrane Based Water Treatment

Convener: Ron Kasher, BIDR

Membrane-based water treatment technologies such as reverse osmosis, nanofiltration and ultrafiltration play key roles in seawater and brackish water desalination, industrial waste treatment, and surface water purification. These technologies are highly efficient in terms of energy consumption and transport properties. Nevertheless, a continuing challenge remains – membrane fouling – which is the accumulation of organic and biological matter on the membrane surface and its clogging. This session will be focused on (i) design and development of membrane surfaces that resist fouling, (ii) antifouling mechanisms, and (iii) new strategies for anti-fouling membrane modifications.
