Join us for the 25th Annual Practical Membrane Technology Short Course!
The 25th annual Practical Membrane Technology Short Course will mark the 8th consecutive year that Dairy Foods Magazine and Filtration & Membrane World LLC have partnered to produce this one of a kind event. This 2 ½ day Short Course will focus on the basics of membrane technology and process design as well as new membrane technologies, materials and applications. In addition, guided facility tours will be held on the 3rd day of the short course allowing you to get up close and personal with new and existing membrane products and processes.
The Practical Membrane Technology Short Course is a great resource for professionals in dairy, beverage, food processing, functional ingredients and bioactives industries looking for new methods to eliminate process bottleneck, enhance efficiency and offer new products to increase their profitability. Industry experts come together for this annual event to share their knowledge and expertise in an interactive forum allowing participants to get the most out of their experience. Participants will benefit from exceptional networking with presenters, sponsors and peers at this live, in-person experience.
