5th International Symposium on Physics of Membrane Processes (PMP2022)

This international mini-conference covers research into understanding the fundamentals of membrane transport processes, with special attention to aqueous solutions. We discuss recent developments in membrane and system-level transport phenomena, multi-phase flows in membrane systems, for membrane technologies including ion-exchange membranes, electrodialysis, nanofiltration, and reverse osmosis, as well as for other new promising membrane methodologies.

The symposium will be held on October 13-14, 2022, both in person, in the Netherlands, and online!

Conference venue: Wageningen International Congress Centre (Hotel WICC)

List of topics:

Ion sorption equilibrium and Donnan potential
Modeling the membrane-solution interface
