Course Objectives:

Membranes are one of the most dynamic sectors in Filtration from Forward Osmosis (FO) to Reverse Osmosis (RO) to Nanofiltration (NF) to Ultrafiltration (UF) to Microfiltration (MF). These include applications in Sea Water Desalination, Waste Water Recycling and Reuse, Biopharmaceuticals, Forward Osmosis, Membrane Distillation, Produced Water Reuse and/or Beneficial Use, Pharmaceutical Manufacturing, Semiconductor Fluid Clarification, Food and Beverage Stabilization, etc. This market segment is one of the fastest growing and most profitable in the Filtration Market.


This course is to provide you an overall understanding of membrane market, technologies how to make MF/UF/NF/RO membranes, desired performance characteristics of the various types of membranes for different applications, and how to convert membranes into highly functional filtration devices. The unmet needs and trends for future development will also be addressed.

· Market Overview for Membranes

o Relative Size and Growth by Membrane Type and Application

· Description and Definition of MF, UF, NF, RO and FO Membranes

· The Desired Performance Characteristics of the various types of Membranes

· How Membranes are Manufactured

· How Membranes are Converted into Highly Functional Filtration Devices

· Challenges of Matching Device to Membrane Performance

· The Key Applications for Membranes

o Desired Performance Attributes for the Key Applications

· Developing Membrane Application

o Technology Challenges to Developing Applications

· Unmet Needs and Trends for Further Development

· Prediction on the Future of Membranes
