Membrane Technology Forum

Umang Yagnik, senior channel growth manager, ZwitterCo , will present at the Membrane Technology Forum. The presentation will take place on June 14 from 3:20 to 3:50 p.m. at The Marriott City Center in Minneapolis.

Umang is Senior Channel Growth Manager at ZwitterCo, bringing ZwitterCo’s unique technology through channel partners across a variety of segments. He has 15 years of experience in the water industry within product management, marketing, business development, and technical sales. He has a degree in chemical engineering and earned an executive diploma in Marketing Management. He spent 7 years with Hydranautics, starting in India. Then in Canada he worked as both the Global Product Marketing Manager (Ultrafiltration) and Regional Account Executive for the company. Umang then joined Mann & Hummel Water & Fluid Solutions in 2019 as the Global Product Manager for UF. In 2021, he joined the North American expansion of NX Filtration as the Commercial Manager. He led the expansion and helped achieve commercial success in the form of multiple orders and paid pilots while establishing a strong pipeline for the following years.

What the presentation is and what will be covered?

The development of zwitterionic superfiltration (SF) membranes that are immune to irreversible organic fouling is creating new opportunities in dairy wastewater reuse by providing superior protection to downstream reverse osmosis (RO) systems. This presentation reviews a dairy processor case study of a novel, on-site SF-RO wastewater treatment process. The case study provides insight to the SF-RO technology operational characteristics, with particular focus on how the SF membrane improves downstream RO operations. As a result of implementing this solution, this facility has significantly reduced its hauling costs. This SF-RO process can be used throughout the dairy industry to enable compliance with discharge permits while reducing wastewater costs and enabling water reuse. 

 Who should attend:

This presentation will be beneficial to people with dairy or other industrial wastewater treatment needs, especially those working on plants with high hauling or discharge costs. This presentation discusses how zwitterionic membranes enable membrane-based treatment of hard-to-treat industrial wastewaters and reduce wastewater management costs.

The Membrane Technology Forum is presented by Dairy Foods and the American Dairy Products Institute.
