Course Objectives:

In many producing sectors water is one of the most important resources interacting with several steps of the value-added chain. Here, pressure-driven membrane processes usually offer reliable and resource-efficient solutions. The objective of this course is to help get a high-level understanding of operating principles, possibilities, and limitations of these membrane processes for the treatment of water, process fluids, and wastewater.

Upon completion, the participants of this course, in close cooperation with experts, will be able to identify and design the adequate processes that can be used to resolve production-specific / product-relevant tasks in their respective water-related problems.

Using a technological approach based on a phenomenological oriented methodology, fundamentals, and application examples will be discussed.

· General aspects of water treatment with membrane technology

· Technological fundamentals of the pressure driven membrane processes microfiltration (MF), ultrafiltration (UF), nanofiltration (NF) and reverse osmosis (RO)

· Materials and structures of commercially available membranes, membrane elements and membrane modules used for MF, UF, NF and RO

  • Membranes as well-defined      barriers

  • Strategies in water management and application      examples based on membrane processes in selected areas of water treatment:

- Production

- Reuse

- Protection

· Example for improving operation of membrane processes

· Future developments

Instructor Biography

Dr.-Ing. Thomas Peters

Director of Dr.-Ing. Peters Consulting for Membrane Technology and Environmental Engineering, Neuss, Germany

Senior Technology Consultant

Dr.-Ing. Thomas Peters is an internationally renowned independent consultant for membrane technology and environmental engineering. He has over 40 years of experience in the field of pressure-driven membrane processes for the treatment of water, process fluids, and wastewater. Related pioneering work was focused between others on the use of reverse osmosis for desalination of seawater, for the purification of landfill leachate and water reuse in different areas.

He studied chemical engineering (Dipl.-Ing.) at the Technical University Clausthal in Germany and earned his Ph.D. in 1980 at the University of Erlangen-Nürnberg on the subject „Production of drinking water from seawater with reverse osmosis“. After leading management functions in a middle-sized and a multinational company he is high-level independent technology consultant since 1986, authored more than 100 publications and more than 50 oral presentations and contributions to water or membrane technology-related international conferences and congresses, co-authored different books, contributed decisively to several membrane technology-related guidelines published by professional associations in Germany and is co-editor of a landfill compendium. He has been awarded the Stanley Gray Award - Marine Technology 2000/2001 of the IMarEST, London, and the ATCP Award 2007, Concepción, Chile.
