Sustainable development of human society depends on adequate supplies of water. In areas where high quality water supplies are limited, water desalination and recycling are often needed. Among various techniques for water purification, membrane technology has been increasingly explored because it can be adapted to treat a wide range of waters for different purposes. The key issue in the membrane treatment is the control of operational costs and energy consumption, which is closely tied to water permeability, salt/contaminant rejection, and increasing membrane fouling with treatment time. Membrane processes are also widely applied in industry for product purification and waste treatment. In this session, papers on the fabrication and application of mixed matrix membrane for water purification as well as other industrial applications are solicited. In particular, we encourage submission of papers on the mixed matrix membranes containing novel materials such as nanoparticles, carbon nanotubes, graphene, aquaporins, molecular sieves, and mesoporous materials.
