International Forward Osmosis Summit 2016

0

Inspired by the natural osmotic process, ubiquitous to all living cells, forward osmosis (FO) and pressure retarded osmosis (PRO) are now emerging as alternative membrane technologies for desalination and energy generation. Discussing and sharing the latest progress and envisioning the future perspectives within the academia and industries is however vital for the progress of these novel technologies. IFOS has been therefore founded with the main aim to provide a specific forum and also aims to encourage more academia and industries on board to this field. The first IFOS 2014 was held at Shanghai on 19 July 2014 where about 120 participants from 8 countries attended the summit. Encouraged by the success of the first IFOS and the positive feedback the organizers received, the summit will be held every two years.

Event Type:

Welcome to Sydney
As the driest continent on the earth, it is therefore fitting that the second IFOS is held in Australia at the beautiful harbour city of Sydney. The University of Technology, Sydney (UTS) will host the second IFOS in Dec 2016.
