Filtration Industry Gears Up for WFC 13

After an extended delay due to Covid, the 13th World Filtration Congress (WFC 13) is on track for a fully-fledged, in-person, industry-wide gathering in San Diego, October 5-9.

WFC 13 is the leading filtration conference for technical programming and includes seven plenary and 30 keynote presentations, and more than 300 technical presentations in addition to student and industry poster presentations delivered by experts from around the globe. The expo will showcase the latest filtration and separations technologies and equipment, and networking opportunities will bring together senior executives, end-users, corporate members, engineers, scientists, students, marketing managers, policymakers and strategy directors. 

The Congress’s technical presentations are divided into three symposia: Energy, Environment and Health. The impact on the filtration industry of the events of the past two years will take center stage especially in the Health symposium, in which three sessions have been added: Facemask and Respirators for Filtering Airborne Viruses & Harmful Aerosols, Vaccine Production Filtration & Separation, and Cleanroom Filtration. Student and industry posters are being accepted for consideration through February 25 – get started here.

While the booths are completely sold out, the conference still has sponsorships available for organizations seeking greater attention from this global group of professionals. Reach out to Tom Justice at [email protected] to join WFC 13 sponsors SWM, Eaton, FTC, International Filtration News, Nichidai USA Corporation, Whitehouse Scientific, Spectubular Technologies and Gerard Daniel.

The World Filtration Congress has traditionally been held once every four years, but the pandemic caused a six-year gap between WFC 12 and WFC 13, which was originally scheduled in April of 2020. The event rotates among member countries of INDEFI (International Delegation on Filtration): Austria, Australia, China, Chinese Taipei, France, Germany, Hungary, India, Japan, Nordics, UK and USA. The purpose of the Congress is to foster a forum for scientists, engineers and practitioners in the world working on filtration and separation to meet and share the latest advances and technologies.

Registration will open in April. Fees are posted here. Stay updated on registration and other WFC 13 developments on the WFC 13 website, LinkedIn page and Twitter feed.
