Overview

The Singapore Membrane Technology Centre (SMTC) under the Nanyang Environment & Water Research Institute (NEWRI), at Nanyang Technological University (NTU) of Singapore, was established in January 2008 to do fundamental and applied research in membrane technology. In particular, it has a mission to be a world-class research centre in membranes for the environment, water, energy and cleaner production. This is achieved through combining multidisciplinary talents at NTU as well as working closely with government institutions, other universities and industry partners to bring the outcomes of the research activities to larger scale through collaborative projects.


Mission​
  • Research & Development: research with links to industry and international community
  • Education & Training: to produce PhDs and Researchers in membranes technology
  • Industry & Application: to act as incubator for novel membrane technology.​​​​​​​​​​​​
