The Membranes & Desalination Specialist Network consists of two clusters of individuals whose special interests share much in common and where there is often considerable overlap. Typically the two-way interaction is evident in applications where membrane technology is utilised as pre-treatment for thermal or reverse osmosis desalination, thermal processes are being incorporated into new membrane reactors and reverse osmosis is employed as the final “polishing” step in water recycling processes.
While there are small differences in the emphasis to place on the best use and most appropriate choice of technological mix to apply at any one time, both groups have shared the same Conference platform and enjoyed the three events so far concluded: the Membranes & Desalination Specialty I in Adelaide in 2005, Membrane & Desalination Specialty II in Melbourne in 2007, and Membrane & Desalination Specialty III in Sydney in 2009. Reports from these events are available in the 'Publications' section.

Membranes, the Key to Australian Desalination and Water Reclamation Practice
Reverse osmosis, micro- and ultra-filtration membranes are the essential components for drinking water systems, water recycling and reclamation and brackish water desalination in Australia. Below are some of the leading examples of their application to the country’s water management agenda.

MEMBRANES IN MINING: IDENTIFYING SOLUTIONS TO IMPROVE QUALITY AND SOLVE
AUSTRALIA’S UNIQUE CHALLENGESPresented by National Centre of Excellence in Desalination Australia
Tuesday 29 April, 1.15-3.15pm,
Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre
As Australia expands its mining interests and tightens
environmental control on mining operations, the need for onsite water treatment
will become more critical. Membrane technology can provide an easily
transportable option for water treatment, especially to serve the remote
locations of many mining sites. The workshop will be conducted in two
Educate participants on the potential for
membranes in mining and coal seam gas operations, and
Work in cross-disciplinary groups of varied
experiences to identify potential areas for new investigations that will assist
the industry in optimising its delivery strategies
Attendance at the workshop is included in the Ozwater
registration fee. For more information go to www.ozwater.org
