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.
- To be the nexus of membrane science and technology activity in Pakistan.
- To promote collaboration among the researchers, technologists and industry involvement.
- To disseminate membrane technology across the community and to end users.
- To pace with current global research and highlight future trends.
The PMS is to represent Membrane Science and Technology in Pakistan realizing that this will be aligned with societal needs to seek indigenous solutions to indigenous problems.
This will be achieved by:
providing an open forum for transferring and sharing technologies as well as capabilities within the members, industries and higher education organizations
supporting multidisciplinary networking events
providing leadership and mentorship in membrane science for the Pakistani membrane community
promoting opportunities for young members;
enabling wider understanding of the membrane technologies for public interest
