Membrane treatment of water has enabled facilities to recover drinking water from the sea, to reuse waste water, to provide safe, pure drinking water from water that would not otherwise be acceptable for the public. The American Membrane Technology Association and the American Water Works Association along with the Water Environment Federation and the WateReuse Association will present the latest developments in membrane water treatment technologies at the Membrane Technology Conference and Exposition. This event will take place March 12-16 at the Palm Beach County Convention Center in West Palm Beach, Florida. Over 1,000 individuals from the membrane industry will be coming to West Palm Beach to learn about new developments, hear about success stories and share how problems have been overcome. A full exhibit area of the prominent suppliers to the industry will be at the Convention Center and over 100 booths will display new products, better ways to operate facilities and the best of what the industry has to offer.
The conference will feature four tracks of 115 presentations by membrane treatment professionals. There will even be three tours of six local water treatment facilities one day. South Florida has over 40 membrane treatment facilities providing water for many of the residents. Ground water high in color and salt is being treated in these plants to make sure residents get water that looks good, taste nice and is safe to drink. These facilities can range from a very small system for a local bottling company to the largest nanofiltration plant in the world right in Boca Raton.
The Opening General Session on Tuesday, March 13 will kick-off the conference with Water For People CEO Eleanor Allen as the keynote speaker. Water For People is involved in bringing reliable and sustainable access to safe water and sanitation in Latin America, Africa and India.
