Advanced Filtration Technologies

October 24 – 27, 2016

Short Courses, April 10, 2017
April 11 – 13, 2017

It gives us great pleasure to invite you all to AFS 2017 Spring Conference Advanced Technologies in Filtration in Louisville, Kentucky from April 10th – 13th at the Galt House.

The Global Filtration industry is projected to grow exponentially in the next 5 to 10 years. This would pose a big challenge on the filter and filter media manufacturers not just in terms of producing more filters but also require more innovative products in the marketplace. To meet this ever increasing demand and regulations for clean and sustainable environment, it is necessary for the filtration industry to grow at an aggressive rate. This conference will address unmet market needs, advanced technologies in Air, liquid and automotive filtration and the trends for future developments.

We will offer a special reception event on one of the evenings of the conference which will feature a short evening cruise (with dinner and cocktails) on the Ohio River. There will also offer a technical tour of Blue Heaven technologies testing facility. The details of the tours will be finalized and updated in the next few weeks.

Online abstract submission will be open in October 2016 however abstracts can be submitted early.  Please contact AFS Conference Coordinator, Deahna Cring at for more information.

The conference will also feature plenary talks from the top leaders in the industry:

Phil Whitaker, CEO AAF International.

Paul Marold, President of Lydall Performance Materials, Inc.

We will continue to update our website as we have further information and updates, so please revisit this site often. We look forward to seeing you in Louisville !
