Project Description

Increasing water demand due to a growing population and improved lifestyles is exerting greater pressure on existing water resources. The increasing number of contaminants entering the water supplies is further challenging water authorities worldwide. This project investigated using membrane filtration as a physical separation process and as an effective barrier for a wide range of inorganic and organic contaminants, producing excellent quality product water.
