The WateReuse Association is excited to partner with AWWA, AMTA  and WEF for the 2018 Membrane Technology Conference. Join us to explore how the latest developments in membrane technology can enhance water reliability and quality. Each year the conference reveals new directions in water and wastewater treatment technologies, desalting and membrane bioreactor application.

Pre-Conference Workshop: Membranes in Action with Reuse

March 12, 2018, 1:00 – 4:15 p.m.
Presented by WateReuse Association

The WateReuse Workshop will showcase the effective use of membrane technology in four water reuse projects, including two for drinking water, one for groundwater replenishment, and one for environmental restoration.

Compare & Contrast: Ultrafiltration, Reverse Osmosis and Nanofiltration

Learn about the design and operational protocol for testing four different ultrafiltration membrane modules, three reverse osmosis membrane elements, and one nanofiltration membrane element during a two-year potable reuse demonstration study for the City of Daytona Beach, Florida.
