Organic Solvent Nanofiltration Conference a Success

Last month, the Department hosted a very successful 3 day conference on Organic Solvent Nanofiltration, funded by 3 European Commission Marie Curie Action funded projects.

Prof. Livingston
 Chaired by Professor Andrew Livingston, Head of Department, the conference attracted an audience of more than 130 participants from over 20 countries. Experts shared their latest research and case-studies from the young but rapidly growing field of OSN. The conference topics included membrane synthesis and characterisation, modelling of transport mechanisms and applications in the food, pharmaceutical, fine chemical and petro-chemical industries.

As well as enjoying an excellent range of technical presentations and more than 30 poster presentations, the participants were provided with highly enjoyable networking events, including an informal reception at Eastside and an exclusive dinner reception cruise on the Thames.
