Advances in membrane technology are being implemented by communities, businesses, and innovators responding to changing water demands and supplies, as well as the need for efficiency and sustainability.
The 2016 Membrane Technology Conference & Exposition is the premier showcase for the latest developments in water, wastewater, reuse, and industrial membrane systems and practices. Attendees will enjoy three full days of cutting-edge presentations, with numerous networking opportunities to learn and share. Plus, the conference offers a comprehensive exhibit hall with more than 90 booths, roundtable sessions, and dedicated exhibit hall time to explore and connect.
As North America’s thirst for high-quality sustainable water supplies increases, the MTC becomes even more vital. Join us to stay current and prepare for the future.

Membrane Filtration and Desalination
Membrane filtration and desalination have been at the core of the MTC since its inception, and in 2016 these are once again foundational topics. The following sessions will highlight several novel yet practical approaches to membrane filtration and desalination that are being used to meet today’s challenges.
- MF/UF Systems: Experience Leads to Improvement
- Overcoming Obstacles: Seawater Desalination
- Carlsbad Seawater Desalination Project: Road to Operation
- Brackish Groundwater Challenges
- Wastewater & Reuse
As wastewater treatment using membrane bioreactors (MBR) has grown in popularity, the body of knowledge of MBR operation and practice has grown as well. Additionally, as communities begin to stretch their existing water supplies, more will consider treating wastewater for subsequent reuse. These sessions cover a wide range of wastewater and reuse issues and solutions facing communities in North America and around the world.
- One Water, Many Uses: The Present and Future of Water Reuse
- Potable Water Reuse Research
- MF/UF Piloting and Testing (for Reuse)
- Targeting the Best Water Quality
- Improving MBRs: Operation and Practice
- Industrial Applications
With greater interest in water recycling and reuse, industrial applications of membrane technologies are growing by leaps and bounds. These sessions offer a wide range of perspectives and experiences with membranes used in oil & gas and mining applications.
