19th Nordic Filtration Symposium, June 13-15

It is a long tradition that the Nordic filtration experts from academia and industry come together. To catch-up, to share, and to promote young professionals.

In 2023 it is time to meet again, this year in Finland, at LUT University which is one of the founding members of the Nordic Filtration Society, and the Finnish hub for filtration and separation science.

We welcome old members and new friends to join us for the

19th Nordic Filtration Symposium (NoFS19) in Lappeenranta, Finland, June 13-15, 2023


NoFS brings together researchers, industry, and policymakers to discuss technical and business solutions to separation challenges in a circular economy, such as: 

• Separation and recycling of battery chemicals 

• Efficient dewatering of sludges 

• Protein shift and its effect on protein separation processes

• Utilization of industrial side streams 

This year NoFS takes on a new component with the first Scientific Seminar of the SCI-MAT Research Platform on June 15. This free of charge seminar is about the sustainable circularity of industrial inorganic side streams, and how to collaborate across disciplines.

In addition to quality content and networking opportunities with professionals, you will enjoy the program which mixes tech visits with Finnish lake-side summer entertainment.

Technical visits:

 • Metso Filtration Competence Center – see how the filters are made

• Nordkalk Lime Stone mine in the middle of the city

• LUT lab tours – world class laboratories with 300 different pieces of equipment

Social program:

• Get together event at old Kasino restaurant by lake Saimaa. An evening with friends and entertainment

• Conference dinner at Wanha Makasiini restaurant in the harbour. Good food and white nights.
