  • Project Name Assessing granular activated carbon capacity for algal T & O removal: Development of a predictive tool
  • Lead Organisation Melbourne Water
  • Research Lead UNSW Sydney
  • Main Researcher Rafael De Medeiros Paulino

Status: In Progress

National Research Priority: Supply Optimisation

Project Description

This project will use granular activated carbon to remove algal metabolites. Adsorption and biodegradation of algal metabolites will be monitored and modelled in the laboratory and at pilot scales, with the aim of guaranteeing safe and cost-effective drinking water treatment.
