Membrane Separation Technologies in the Spotlight
After almost one year of successful TwiNSol-CECs project implementation, membrane separation technologies, which stand at the forefront among innovative solutions for CECs removal from water resources, are coming into focus. A series of lectures and trainings will be given by our colleagues from the project partner institution NOVA University Lisbon - School of Science and Technology (UNL), who have a significant expertise in the application of membrane separation technologies in the water purification and treatment.
UNL team lead by a world-known expert in membrane processes Prof. Joao Crespo, will prepare and provide a series of lectures with a focus on state-of-the-art knowledge on understanding and designing of membrane separation processes. Through the corresponding knowledge transfer either in the form of training lessons or online presentations, TFNS researchers will have a chance to improve their knowledge and skills and hence raise scientific excellence of both personal and institutional competences.
Firstly, a great opportunity for all researchers interested in the membrane technology to listen and learn from the very best will be a scientific online lecture given by Prof. Joao Crespo on “Pressure driven membrane separation processes”.
Afterwards, the second online lecture entitled “Integration of membrane and disinfection processes for water treatment and reuse” will be held by another UNL - membrane processes top leading expert, Dr. Vanessa Pereira.
At the end of September, an on-site training with theoretical and practical sessions named “Computational methods as a support for membrane based separation” will be organized at Faculty of Technology Novi Sad. During the training, Dr. Sylwin Pawlowski and Dr. Claudia Galinha, both recognized experts in the field of membrane technologies, coming from UNL, will provide a head-to-head knowledge transfer on the following topics:
• New techniques for development of membranes and devices (electrospinning and 3D printing),
• Computational fluid dynamics,
• Membranes characterization and modelling tools: 2d fluorescence and statistical analysis.
The exact dates and agenda will be available soon at the social media profiles of the TwiNSol-CECs project.
