Separations Sciences Lab hosts short course

The Texas A&M University Separations Sciences Lab is hosting its annual Membrane, Filtration, and Separations short course April 6-10, 2008, in College Station, Texas.

The short course provides a broad overview of how membranes can be used for water treatment, especially the desalination of coastal waters, brackish groundwater, and oilfield-produced waters. Sessions of the short course will present an overview about principles of membrane-based treatment methods, challenges associated with membrane fouling, and new research-based technological developments. Speakers include several experts from the desalination industry, agencies, and higher education.
