Thursday 15th June 2017
UdG Scientifical and Technological Park, Auditori Jaume Casademont
This workshop will disseminate several R&D&I projects focused on the application of membrane technologies to drinking water treatment, wastewater treatment and water reuse. Particularly, the results of LEQUIA projects SSAMBRA and OMBReuse funded under TECNIOSPRING programme will be presented.
TECNIOspring is an international mobility fellowship programme that offers experienced researchers the possibility to develop an applied research project in any R&D entity around the world. Host institutions can be entities recognised with the TECNIO accreditation or, in the new TECNIOspring+ programme, companies based in Catalonia.
SSAMBRA project seeks to strengthen Smart Air MBR® applications and to achieve both energy and fouling reduction in membrane bioreactors. Smart Air MBR® is an automatic control system that regulates the air scour flow required to physically clean the membranes and monitors its effect on the process. Host entities: LEQUIA-UdG and Polymem.
OMBReuse project aims at optimizing osmotic membrane bioreactor (OMBR) to render it economically attractive while assuring a water quality satisfying drinking standards to support water reuse scheme. Host entity: LEQUIA-UdG.
Elevator pitch session. For those interested, a time slot will be reserved for elevator presentations (5 minutes), where membrane technology providers and users will have the opportunity to present new developments or case studies. If you would like to give a presentation, please, let us know.
Venue. Parc Científic i Tecnològic de la UdG, Auditori Jaume Casademont, Pic de Peguera, 15, 17003 Girona.
Workshop on MBR at University of Barcelona, 14th June
On June 14th the Environmental Biotechnology Group of University of Barcelona (UB) organises the "VI Jornada BRM" devoted to membrane bioreactors (MBR). This edition will have a special focus on anaerobic membrane bioreactors. The programme and all associated information can be found on http://www.ub.edu/bioamb/brm.
