Since 1974, the World Filtration Congress has been held once every four years and rotates among member countries of INDEFI (International Delegation on Filtration).  The purpose of the congress is to foster a forum for scientists, engineers and practitioners in the world working on filtration and separation to meet and share the latest advances and technologies. There is a large exhibition of technologies and latest products on filtration and separation held concurrently with the technical sessions.
