Chemical & Biological Catalysis: Membrane Reactors for Process Intensification - Track Event at ICCMR11

7-11 July 2013 - Porto, Portugal /

A membrane track event was organised by EMH during the 11th International Conference on Catalysis in Membrane Reactors (ICCMR11).

The track event was made up of 3 sub-events:

1 - An invited plenary tandem and introductory lecture : EMH invited Prof. A.Netrussov from the University of Moscow. Together with EMH’s executive director, he gave a talk entitled “Perspectives and opportunities for bio-catalytic membrane reactors in a bio-based economy.

2- A session of the conference was devoted to the presentation of EU projects in progress on the topic of catalytic membrane reactors. Discussions focused on chemical and biological catalysis.

3- EMH gave students two awards : 500 € were awarded to "Best original works with potential for industrial applications" (1 for an oral presentation and 1 for a poster presentation).

More EMH people participated in the conference: presentations were made by Dr. Lidietta Giorno – Dir. ITM/CNR (Italy) and Prof J.G. Crespo – Vice Rector / UNL (Portugal).
