Welcome to the website of Pakistan membrane Society (PMS). PMS aims to be the nexus of membrane science and technology activity in Pakistan. Our vision is to promote collaborative engagements across the community to disseminate membrane technology to end users. PMS provides an open forum for transferring and sharing technologies as well as capabilities within the members, industries and high education organizations. PMS is the representation body to promote the activities in membrane science and technology both in the research and industrial sectors.

PMS was founded in 2014 as an outcome of a national seminar on membrane technology organized by the Membrane Group of COMSATS University Islamabad, Lahore Campus. The society has since grown very fast with a number of membrane groups becoming its part. In the past few years, a number of successful international events have been organized by PMS that include International Conference on Separation Processes (2017), Sustainability in Process Industries (2016/2018) and GCRF Workshop on Membrane Technology (2019). We welcome the researchers, students, industrial professionals and entrepreneurs involved in the membrane research and development.
