International Workshop on

Salinity Gradient Energy

4th-6th September 2012, Milan, Italy


In the frame of European Project FP7 project CAPMIX ( we organize the "International Workshop on Salinity Gradient Energy Milan 2012", in Italy, hold near Milan at the NH-ConcordiaHotel, from the 4th to the 6th September 2012.

Please note that NO WORKSHOP FEE is required.

The goals of the workshop are to provide a forum to share and discuss the latest advances for all active researchers in the field of salinity difference energy.
In this workshop, we intend to focus on the physical principles of the techniques, the development of materials, the project of prototypes and pilot plants, in particular for the following techniques:
  • Pressure-retarded osmosis
  • Reverse electrodialysis
  • Capacitive mixing or Salinity exchange
  • Desalinization
The meeting will cover also more general topics, in particular electrokinetics, electrochemistry, ionic exchange membranes, membranes biofouling, energy generation from natural waters, energy from industrial wastes, energy storage and hybrid applications.
