Membrane contactors represent an emerging technology that can lead to significant innovation in processes and products, thus offering new opportunities in the design, rationalization and optimization of innovative productions. Among the different operations, membrane distillation (MD) and related technologies represent a powerful tool to improve current production processes with fundamental benefits in terms of process efficiency and products quality.

Following the first conference on “Membrane Distillation” held in Rome on May 1986 (Chairman Prof. Enrico Drioli, CNR-ITM), the “International Workshop on Membrane Distillation and Related Technologies” held on 9-12 October 2011, the 2 nd International Workshop on “Membrane Distillation and Innovating Membrane Operations in Desalination and Water Reuse” held on July 1 - 4, 2015, the 3rd International Workshop on “Membrane Distillation and Innovating Membrane Operations in Desalination and Water Reuse” will be held on April 12 - 15, 2021 in Ravello (on the Amalfi Coast), Italy, organized (as the previous ones )by the Institute on Membrane Technology (CNR-ITM).

All relevant membrane contactors operations and their relevant aspects (from new membranes synthesis to modelling of the transport mechanisms, combination with alternative energy sources and applications) will be discussed.

The purpose of the Workshop is to share the latest research works and technological advances in the field and its’ areas of application. A compelling program, featuring an interesting line-up of international speakers that will present in-depth information about the latest technologies and products will characterize the event.

Oral presentations at the Workshop are by invitation only from the Committee. A Poster session with contributions presented by researchers to illustrate leading edge research to an international audience, will be available at the conference site. The event will represent also an excellent opportunity for networking, collaborations and partnerships among scientist coming from different areas of expertise. Prizes will be assigned for the best poster presentations given by early career researchers.
