Nanofiltration – The upcoming membrane technology for water and wastewater treatment?

Wednesday, November 30, 2012:


11:00 am - 12:30 pm Eastern US Time

Nanofiltration (NF) was originally developed alongside reverse osmosis (RO), ultrafiltration (UF) and microfiltration (MF) membrane technologies more than 30 years ago. However, the drivers which emerged in the drinking water market during the 1990’s bypassed NF. Thus whereas RO, UF and MF enjoyed rapid development and an enthusiastic uptake, NF remained a niche technology. More recently however, concerns have risen about the impact of emerging contaminants such as pharmaceutical residuals and pesticides in surface water sources. NF may soon become a key technology to secure water quality, especially in the context of an increasing focus on wastewater reuse as an alternative resource. In addition, NF should achieve future treatment standards for dissolved organics with lower energy input than RO.

This BlueTech Tracker™ webinar will include presentations from international technology experts and market leaders from the US, Belgium, the Netherlands, and the UK. The webinar will provide insights into the current status of nanofiltration, both in terms of drivers and technology, and will include a Q&A session to address specific questions from participants.

Organized in Partnership with


BlueTech Tracker™ Webinar Series



O2 ENVIRONMENTAL Inc will be running a series of BlueTech Tracker™ webinars to highlight key opportunities and emerging trends in water technologies. Each webinar will bring together leading experts and water technology companies. The webinars will focus on the business and market opportunity for these innovative solutions.

The series will be of interest to venture capital investors, water technology companies, regulators and end users. We will show how the drivers for change are reshaping our water system and how companies that are at the leading edge of these trends will be positioned to be part of a new, smarter, more efficient water system.

How It Works

After a live webinar is completed, we first have to tweak the audio settings to make sure the audio sounds okay; the recording will be available 24-48 hours later for your purchase.
Once Infocast has verified receipt of payment from you, an email will be sent within 24 hours containing the link to the recording and any available presentation materials.
You will be able to listen to the recording at your convenience, where ever you have an internet connection.
If you have any questions that were not answered during the recorded live Q&A session, presenters often include their contact information so that you may get in touch with them directly. If you don’t see any given during the presentation, please contact Emily Baker at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and she’ll be happy to forward your question on to the presenters.

Single Connection: $245.00
Additional Connection at the same Organization: $150.00

A site connection allows a single connection to the web conference. That connection is open to any number of users in a collaborative setting. Because there are no travel expenses and only a single registration fee is required, each additional participant lowers the cost per participant significantly.

By purchasing a site connection, you can invite as many people as you would like to view and participate in the session from a single location. Set up the session in a conference room and project the presentation and chat on a large screen. You also have rights to distribute copies of the presentation materials to everyone involved. Please note that audio is received via the phone line and must be broadcast to your group.

If for any reason a relevant stakeholder cannot co-locate for the session, we encourage you to include that person by purchasing an additional connection at the reduced fee of $150 per session. This will ensure that every member of a team receives the same relevant, timely information in the most efficient way. If you have any technical or purchasing questions, please contact us at (818) 888-4444.

Should you be unable to attend, a refund, less a $50 administrative charge, will be made for cancellations received via letter or fax at least 3 working days before the event. We regret cancellations will not be accepted after that date. However, we will be pleased to transfer your registration to another member of your company or credit the registration fee to another Infocast conference if you register within 6 months from the date of this conference. In the event the conference is canceled, Infocast’s liability is limited to the refund of the conference registration fee only.
