Welcome to EMEA2022: Workshop on Ion Exchange Membranes for Energy Applications

June 20th – 22nd, 2022 in Bad Zwischenahn/Germany

90 participants from 20 countries made the last EMEA-workshop in June 2021 a success, even if it was the first time, the workshop had to be held online due to the pandemic limitations. We are very pleased to announce that the upcoming EMEA2022 Workshop is planned as an on-site event again!

Material developments and ion exchange membrane-based systems for energy applications will be discussed in presence by representatives from research and industry with the focus set on anion exchange membranes. In addition to invited and contributed talks a poster exhibition offers scientists and especially young researchers and students the opportunity to present their work. A price for the best poster will be awarded. A welcome reception and the conference dinner will provide additional opportunities for lively scientific exchange in a familiar atmosphere.

Also this year, the EMEA organisation team was able to attract top-class speakers from the field of alkaline ion exchange membranes for energy applications.

Invited Speakers

  • John Varcoe (University of Surrey, UK)
  • Stephen Paddison (University of Tennessee, Knoxville)
  • Dario Dekel (Technion-Israel Institute of Technology)
  • Kenji Miyatake (University of Yamanashi, Japan)
  • Jan-Justus Schmidt (Enapter, Germany)
  • Miles Page (Hydrolite, Israel)
  • Patric Jannasch (Lund University, Sweden)
  • Shannon Boettcher (University of Oregon, USA)
  • Yuseung Kim (Los Alamos National Laboratory, USA)
  • Lorenz Gubler (Paul Scherrer Institute, Switzerland)
