The event was held March 12-16, 2018, at the West Palm Beach Convention Center (Florida).

  • Doctoral student Daniel Whalen presented the poster “Assessment of an Aged Nanofiltration Membrane Process for Rehabilitation.
  • Doctoral student Carlyn Higgins presented the paper “Modeling of Mass Transfer and Endocrine Disrupting Compound Removal in a Nanofiltration Membrane Process Modified for Acid Pretreatment Conditions”;
  • Doctoral student Angela Rodriguez presented the poster “Seawater Brine Management Concepts for Sustainable Reuse”;
  • Dr. Duranceau presented the paper “Nanofiltration Resolves Florida’s Water Quality Challenges” in a pre-conference seminar.

This conference was host to over 1,000 attendees from 16 countries participating in a setting focused on the use of membrane technologies for the treatment of water and wastewater supplies.
