17th International Conference On Inorganic Membranes

Themes and topics

Themes ICIM2024

The conference program will address a range of contemporary inorganic membrane topics including (but not limited to):

Membrane Materials

  • Porous and dense oxide ceramic membranes (e.g., metal oxides, oxide perovskites)
  • Porous and dense non-oxide ceramic membranes (e.g., silica-based, carbides, nitrides, borides, halide perovskites)
  • Porous and dense mineral-based membranes (e.g., zeolites, cordierites, apatites)
  • Carbon-based, 2D materials (e.g., graphene, graphene oxide), 1D materials (e.g., nanotubes), and nanomaterials membranes
  • Hybrid and composite membranes (e.g., Mixed Matrix Membranes, Metal Organic Frameworks)
  • Porous and dense metallic membranes
  • Gate-effect membranes
  • Stimuli-responsive membranes

Membrane processes

  • Transport / Modeling / Simulation
  • Process design / Economics / Life cycle assessment
  • Process intensification
  • Module and reactor design
  • New characterization methods (e.g., coupled or in-situ strategies)
  • Fouling control
  • Scale-up and membrane production technology

Membrane applications

  • Energy / Electrochemical applications (e.g., batteries, fuel cells, electrolyzers)
