    WORKSHOP ON MEMBRANE TECHNOLOGY FOR WATER, ENVIRONMENT AND ENERGY

    2 & 3 August 2018
    Room 301, GJ Gerwel Building, UNISA Science Campus, Florida, South Africa

    Presenters
    Professor Dr Ahmad Fauzi Ismail
    Associate Professor Dr Lau Woei Jye
    Dr Goh Pei Sean
    Dr Hasrinah Hasbullah

     

    The 2-day workshop Membrane Technology for Water, Environment and Energy will be held after AMSIC-2. The workshop is sponsored by the Faculty of Chemical & Energy Engineering (FCEE), Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM) with the cash award given by the Islamic Development Bank (IDB). FCEE won the 15th edition of IDB Science & Technology Prize (Category 2) in 2017.

    During the 2-day membrane workshop, four members from the Advanced Membrane Technology Research Centre (AMTEC), UTM will be giving talks based on their research expertise. They are Prof Dr Ahmad Fauzi Ismail (Director of AMTEC), Assoc Prof Dr Lau Woei Jye (Research Fellow of AMTEC), Dr Goh Pei Sean (Research Associate of AMTEC) and Dr Hasrinah Hasbullah (Research Associate of AMTEC).

    The workshop aims to provide basic principles of membrane and its industrial applications. Specifically, it will cover topics such as principles of membrane formation, membrane synthesis and characterization, membrane configuration and design, membrane process and the success story of membrane applications in Malaysia.

    There is no registration fee for the workshop and interested people (e.g., postgraduate students, scientists and academic staff) are welcome to participate. Due to the limited availability of seats, early registration is strongly recommended to ensure your participation. Please indicate on your AMSIC-2 registration form that you are interested to attend.  Only the first 30 registrations will be accepted.

    Don't miss out on this opportunity!
