Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

For nearly 25 years 'Engineering with Membranes' has been a successful conference series for membrane researchers interested in the engineering aspects of membrane science. The 2019 conference in the 'Engineering with Membranes' takes place in the beautiful town of Båstad in the south of Sweden, 8–10 April, 2019, http://ewm2019.eu/.

The focus of this edition of ‘Engineering with Membranes' will be on 'Membranes for a Sustainable Future'. Thus, the current conference will emphasize how membrane processes can help to achieve the 17 sustainability goals developed by the United Nations. The conference thus welcomes papers dedicated to the sustainable manufacturing, design, and application of membrane and membranes processes. In particular, papers related to the development and integration of membranes processes in the food, biorefinery, and biotech industry are welcomed. The conference schedule is designed to provide an inspiring event with key speeches combined with oral and poster presentations but also time and space for meetings and stimulating discussions.
