Membrane Center Workshop Set for Friday

The Arkansas Membrane Research Center and the Ralph E. Martin Department of Chemical Engineering will host the second Sino-US Membrane Center Workshop from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday, June 15.

The meeting will take place in the first-floor meeting room of the Cato Springs Research Center at 1475 W. Cato Springs Road. Lunch will be provided.

Dave Ford, head of the Ralph E. Martin Department of Chemical Engineering, encouraged interested parties from a variety of fields to attend.

"Interest in membrane-based separation processes in a range of diverse fields such as biomedical, environmental, chemical, oil and gas and others is increasing due to their unique and desirable properties," Ford said. "This second workshop with visitors from the State Key Laboratory of Separation Membranes and Membrane Processes in China will explore some of the recent developments in membrane science and technology and builds upon the highly successful first workshop held in Tianjin, China, in October 2017."

RSVPs are requested. Please email Amber Friday-Brown at to RSVP.
