29 June - 2 July
Nanofiltration 2021 will be held on 29 June to 2 July 2021 on the occasion of the launch of the New Nanofiltration book. The topics will cover the theme of the book: Nanofiltration: Principles, Applications and New Materials. Many of the authors will present their contributions, where additional oral and poster presentations will reflect the state-of-the-art and future developments in nanofiltration. The invitation to submit abstracts is open. I am hoping to welcome some of our membrane emeriti such that we will have an enjoyable membrane family meeting.
The venue is a special one. The Achalm is a mountain near the Swabian Alb that once was a 13th century castle, named after nearby ‘running water’ (Ach). Located in Reutlingen, in the centre of the state Baden-Württemberg. Immersed in a rich South German culture and the amazing natural environment of the UNESCO Biosphere Reserve Swabian Alb, the region offers technological highlights (the home of Porsche and Mercedes, Hugo Boss) as well as incredible recreational delights – and membrane history.
Personally, this is my home and it will be a great pleasure to welcome many international colleagues to the Achalm. Our conference room is a sheep barn, for shepherds and their flock are still at home on the Achalm. We will enjoy stunning views, visit Lichtenstein Castle, have dinner at the Forsthaus and relax with a short hike up to the Achalm and in the stunning infinity pool – or the sauna with a view.
