4th International Symposium on Physics of Membrane Processes – PMP 2021


29-30 September 2021
Online


Due to the uncertainties related to international traveling and the COVID-19 pandemic, we have decided to switch the PMP 2021 workshop to an online event. Participation is free-of-charge

The focus of this workshop is presenting novel theoretical approaches to model membrane processes. We aim to discuss theoretical approaches that focus on microscopic, mesoscopic and macroscopic levels, modeling the membrane-solution interface, the membrane structure, and transport phenomena.

This symposium is driven by a renewed interest in the physics-based modeling of membrane processes, and the need for understanding the laws that all these membrane processes have in common at the fundamental level. Different scales of microscopic models, empirical models and phenomenological approaches all have their various applications. However, it is imperative to build bridges between these levels of modeling.

PMP 2021 will focus on all the membrane processes that have pressure, electrical, thermal, and osmotic effects as driving force. These include, but are not limited to: microfiltration (MF), ultrafiltration (UF), nanofiltration (NF), reverse osmosis (RO), electrodialysis (ED), reverse electrodialysis (RED), membrane distillation (MD), forward osmosis (FO), pressure-retarded osmosis (PRO), and membrane capacitive deionization (MCDI).
