About the workshop

Membranes comprised primarily of polymers are key to a variety of large-scale industrial processes with significant consequences for sustainability - these include gas separations, water purification and CO2 storage and sequestration. This workshop will delineate the key questions in these practically relevant areas and the fundamental advances that are necessary to achieve the ambitious goals that have to be met to alleviate the deleterious consequences of human activity on the environment.

This workshop is being organized as part of the Scheme for Promotion of Academic and Research Collaborations (SPARC) ( program sponsored by the MHRD of India and the Indian Institute of Science (, Bangalore, India. under the Institute of Eminence (IOE) high impact international research workshop scheme. Indian Institute of Science is one of the oldest and currently the top ranked institute of research and university in India, started back in 1909.
