A scientific meeting on Nanostructured carbon membranes held at the Royal Society

On 27 and 28 April 2015, a scientific meeting, ‘Nanostructured carbon membranes for breakthrough filtration applications: advancing the science, engineering and design’, was held at the Royal Society at Chicheley Hall, home of the Kavli Royal Society International Centre, Buckinghamshire. Prof. Jason Reese, Dr Duncan Lockerby, and Prof. David Emerson were three of the organizers.

Nanostructured carbon membranes offer outstanding potential for efficient desalination and wastewater treatment that can help address the world’s water scarcity problems. This meeting brought together the top researchers in the world in the area of carbon membranes, with the goal of addressing outstanding challenges in commercialising this revolutionary technology. In total, 15 talks were given, and the topics ranged from fundamental understanding of the nanofluidics, to design and manufacture of actual membranes.
