Nanofiltration 2022

27 June, 2022 - 30 June, 2022


As communicated on 15 April we are postponing the Nanofiltration conference to 2022. Due to a clash with IWA-MTC Conference in St. Louis, Missouri we have shifted the dates a little forward so those who wish can attend both. We are now holding NF2022 from 27-30 June 2022.

The abstracts submission is open with a deadline of 31 January 2022: https://nanofiltration2022.iamt.kit.edu/26.php.

Participants who have an accepted abstract will receive an email inviting the submission of an updated abstract after 2 years of postponement by 31 Dec 2021 such that we can consider these with priority. We will manage new participants dynamically and look forward to meeting in person in June 2022.

On 29 June 2021 we will formally open IAMT online with some exiting speakers an online tour. Those interested please visit our IAMT website closer to the time where we will post the link(s).


Warm regards and hopefully the pandemic is nearing an end, stay healthy and enjoy the regained freedom!

Nanofiltration 2022 will be held on 27 June to 30 June 2022 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.
