Dear SWA Members & Partners,

Singapore Water Association will be organising a 3-day in-person training class on Membrane Technology (MF/UF/RO/MBR) on 24-26 April 2024.

Course Objectives

To impart overall knowledge of the various membrane technologies used widely in the water treatment industry. The course will cover Micro-filtration, Ultra-filtration, Nano-filtration, Reverse Osmosis and Membrane Bio Reactor (MBR) membrane Technologies used for water, wastewater and seawater desalination, with emphasis on the selection and application of right technology.

Learning Outcome

Participants of this course will have a deeper understanding of the various membrane technologies concerning membranes, process and system designs, applications, sizing and operation and maintenance. Participants will acquire knowledge on how to use these technologies together such as MF/UF followed by RO or MBR followed by RO.

Target Audience

Beginners and experienced participants from the industry and Government.
