    The 2nd African Membrane Society International Congress (AMSIC-2)

    29 July - 01 August 2018, Birchwood Hotel, Johannesburg, South Africa

    Inventing a future filled with knowledge sharing, economic growth and prosperity in Africa using membrane and filtration technologies.

    DURING ITS THREE DAYS, July 29th - August 1st, 2018, THE AMSIC-2 OFFERS NUMEROUS OPPORTUNITIES TO HEAR THE LATEST NEWS FROM THE MEMBRANE SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY COMMUNITY.

    This event aims to capture key technological advances in fields heavily dependent on membrane filtration systems such as water, biotechnology and biomedical sciences, microelectronics, biopharmaceuticals, chemical manufacturing, energy, mining, oil and gas and power generation.

    The meeting will address important technical, scientific and socio-economic issues around membrane science and technology. It will also discuss broader issues related to membrane material and development that will be of interest to institutional, academic and industrial participants.
