Nanotechnology meets water treatment

(Nanowerk News) A first joint nano4water cluster workshop will take place on October 26, 2010 in Aachen, Germany.

"Nanotechnology meets water treatment"

Dissemination Workshop of the nano4water cluster

October 26, 2010

Aachen, Germany

This 1-day workshop is a unique opportunity to learn about the potential of nanotechnology in water treatment in general and for membrane applications in particular. All cluster projects will present ongoing work and achievements. The programme addresses a wide range of issues and aspects relevant for upgrading and intensifying water treatment processes by nanotechnology.
The nano4water cluster is a coalition of research projects, funded by the European Commission following a Joint Call on nanotechnologies for water treatment (FP7-ENV-NMP-2008-2). The action aims to support research and technological development in the field of water treatment by applying developed or adapted nano-engineered materials to promising separation, purification and detoxification technologies.
The projects of the nano4water cluster mainly follow two approaches in improving efficient water treatment: the development of nanomembranes, where engineered nanomaterials are incorporated into the membrane matrix or are deposited on membrane surface, and the use of nanomaterials in catalytic reactors in order to accelerate degradation reactions.
This 1-day workshop is a joint dissemination activity of the cluster - a unique opportunity to learn about the potential of nanotechnology in water treatment generally and membrane applications in particular.
