The American Filtration and Separation Society (AFS) is North America’s premier organization dedicated to separation technology. The AFS conferences and events bring together technology leaders from industry and educational institutions for the benefit of industrial process development, health and environment.
Over the past two years, over 330 organizations have sent representatives to AFS events to benefit from the wide range of possibilities offered, to extent and interchange knowledge on novel separation R&D. This is evidence of the trust in the excellence of the AFS and underlines the serious objective of the American Filtration Society to facilitate networking, customer contact and scientific interchange throughout all separation related technologies.
Even though the AFS is located in North America it spreads out to most of the continents of the world. Serious efforts in the past years have been rewarded with strong networks in Asia, Europe and recently in South America leading to strong international representation at the AFS conferences.
The current economic climate results in significant pressure on most industries. Production rates are down, capital spending is reduced, cost control efforts take over and morale is low. In difficult times like these we should remind ourselves that filtration and separation can play a key role in approaching these challenges. Recent signs of economic stabilization also require an even stronger effort on market evaluation and preparation to increased demand. In the past year resources were concentrated on product and process development, which promises to have generated important novelties for the separation society.
The AFS provides an important platform to keep your company updated on the new opportunities. The vision of the 2011 Annual Conference is to discuss the challenges and the opportunities in separations to address energy and environmental issues and to prepare for growth.
Solid-liquid separation continues to be one of the most important step for many industries. This topic will continue the AFS long history of addressing the most important issues in filtration and separation. The technical program will cover various topics including fundamentals and the latest technologies. The program will focus on solutions related to the solid -liquid separation.
