The Engineering Research Center of Membrane and Water Treatment (Ministry of Education) at Zhejiang University is one of the key centers in the world focusing on membrane materials and water treatment. The National Research Centre of Egypt is the most important institution in Egypt in the field of membrane base water treatment. From March 2017, under the charge of Prof. Bao-Ku Zhu (ZJU) and Prof. A.M. Shaban (NRC), the two institutions started the joint R&D on membrane materials and water treatment technologies. Following the cooperation agreements signed between two sides, the cooperation researches on polymeric ultrafiltration, nanofiltration and osmosis membranes, and the application of membrane in water purification and desalination are proceeding smoothly. In this July, the a joint R&D project “Low-cost Polymeric Membrane and Application Technologies for Desalination and Waste Water Treatment” was selected and financially supported by Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST) of China and Science and Technology Development Fund (STDF) of Egypt. Under the guidelines of this project, the two teams are expecting to get detail achievements both in new sciences and technologies on PVC based membrane materials and applications. As well, the student and researcher exchanges between two teams will progress the education and training cooperation for ZJU and NRC.
