Background and Relevance

The aim of this project was to demonstrate the cost savings, low maintenance and waste reducing opportunities of ceramic membranes in the context of Australian water recycling. This project brings together an international team of technology, water treatment and research experts to successfully demonstrate the novel ceramic membrane system hybridised with ozonation on site at Eastern Treatment Plant (ETP) in Melbourne. An economic assessment was made and demonstrate the true incentives for ceramic membrane in water recycling applications compared to other technologies that aim to at least achieve the same water quality.
