Project Description

This project improved the knowledge of how algae species (population density, morphology and AOM concentration and character) and coagulation conditions (coagulant type, pH, polymer dose, and shear) impact algal floc properties in order to improve the C-F process and downstream separation treatment.

PhD Thesis completed by Andrea Del Pilar Gonzalez Torres in June 2018.
