Researchers from IMDEA Water membrane technology group, Laura Rodríguez, Jorge Senán and Amaia Ortiz de Lejarazu are attending to it, while Junkal Landaburu is participating as an invites speaker in the session on resources recovery with the lecture "Circular economy approach in membrane technology: recycling of end-of-life reverse osmosis membrane". During the talk the work carried out and the results obtained both in the project European Life Transfomem (Ref. LIFE13 ENV/ES/000751) as in the national project INREMEM (Ref. CTM2015-65348-C2-1-R) will be discussed.
The event brings together senior researchers and professionals from the industrial sector related to the sustainable membrane technology and first phase researchers focused on sustainability in membrane science and engineering.
