Center for Membranes and Advanced Water Technology (CMAT)

To face its growing water scarcity challenges, there is a dire need for the UAE to develop and implement long-term, sustainable, well-coordinated, and integrated home-grown technical capacity in water and membrane technologies that are resilient, energy-efficient, environment-friendly and cost effective. The core mission of this center, named Center for Membranes & Advanced Water Technology (CMAT), is to support that.

CMAT research theme are:

    1. Advanced water technologies and hybrid systems
    2. Nanomaterials and membranes
    3. Energy efficiency and sustainability of water processes
    4. Technology transfer and capacity building in desalination and water technology
