The 2nd African Membrane Society International Congress (AMSIC-2) will be held in the City of Johannesburg (South Africa) from the 29th of July to the 1st of August 2018. The AMSIC-2 will be hosted by the Nanotechnology and Water Sustainability (NanoWS) Research Unit of the University of South Africa (UNISA) The NanoWS Research Unit is situated in the UNISA’s College of Science, Engineering and Technology at the Science Campus in Florida (West of the City of Johannesburg). The NanoWS Research Unit has various focus areas of research under which numerous strategic projects relating to nanotechnology and water research are developed. Research topics that will be addressed during AMSIC-2   include, among others:

  • UF, NF, RO, FO and mixed matrix membranes (fabrication and applications),
  • Fabrication and modification of ceramic, ceramic-polymeric and hollow fibre membranes,
  • Composites, nanocomposites, nanomaterials in filtration,
  • Membranes coupled with renewable energy sources,
  • Hybrid membrane filtration systems.

  • This event aims to capture key technological advances in fields heavily dependent on membrane filtration such as Water, Biotechnology and Biomedical sciences, Microelectronics, Chemical Manufacturing, Oil and Gas, and Power Generation. As for membrane studies devoted to water, we will consider water purification projects, analytical/environmental research, urban water cycle and rural community development as well as bioremediation and analysis. The NanoWS research Unit is therefore well poised to host the AMSIC-2. We look forward to welcoming you to the City of Johannesburg in 2018!
