Conference and Exhibition on Membrane Technology and Water Reuse


IWA Regional Conference and Exhibition on Membrane Technology and Water Reuse (IWA-MTWR-2010) was held in Istanbul, Turkey. This conference was the first conference organized jointly by Membrane Technology and Water Reuse groups of IWA. Latest developments related to membrane technologies in water reuse were discussed.
There were totally 285 submitted papers for the conference and 134 papers for oral sessions and 121 papers for poster sessions were accepted. 15 of the orals were accepted as keynotes. Additionally, there were 4 plenary lectures in the opening ceremony. Plenary Lecturers were given by Hasan Z.
