    3rd Congress of the African Membrane Society
    Senegal - November 2-5, 2021

    The Conference will be at the Museum of Black Civilizations in Dakar (opened in 2018)

    Membrane and Filtration Technologies for Sustainable Development

    Reserved flight and hotel of participants for Amsic 3

    AMSIC-3 congress is the premier international venue on the African continent that will simultaneously address key advances in membrane, filtration and sustainable energy technologies. It will be held in Dakar, capital city of Senegal, from November 2 to 5, 2021.

    The rich venue will include a technical conference, a commercial exhibition, some panel sessions and several tutorials.

    AMSIC and its partners will also share their plan to help training skilled technicians across the African continent. The Western Africa subregion will roll out its Apprenticeship Training Programs for high-school-level Technicians focusing on manufacturing competencies relevant to local industries involved in membrane and filtration systems, water, HVAC ventilation, mineral extraction, and waste management technologies.

    AMSIC-3 organizers strive to encourage scientific and technological innovation that will facilitate access to clean water, improved sanitation, better air quality and improved human health in Africa and other regions of the world. The fast-growing demographics and change of ecological landscape facing Africa are bringing to the forefront issues of youth employment and erratic urban center development.

    Contributors will have an opportunity to share their knowledge and to comment on implementing membrane, filtration and sustainable energy technologies in the following areas:


    • Sustainable water production via membrane and filtration technologies
    • Clean air, environmental protection and sustainable filtration strategies
    • Wastewater reuse, recycling via membrane & filtration treatment
    • Industrials applications for membranes (bioseparation, treatment of chemical, textile and mining compounds)
    • Synergistic use of filtration and renewable energies
    • Novel membranes and fiberwebs - Sustainable fabrication methods
    • Novel characterization/analytical techniques and instrumentation
    • Modeling and theoretical tools in filtration and membrane science
