The role of polymer flocculants in microfiltration of surface water
Polymer flocculants, traditionally used with primary coagulant to enhance flocculation and sedimentation, are used in the coagulation-/microfiltration process as well assuming they can improve membrane performance similarly. ...
Impact of Surface Topography on Colloidal and Bacterial Adhesion
Although the importance of substrate surface topography in colloidal and bacterial adhesion is widely recognized, how it affects the adhesion process has been a controversial topic. In this study, the impact of surface ...
Potential Application of D-Amino Acids in Biofouling Control of Nanofiltration (NF) Membranes
Biofouling is a major impediment for the application of reverse osmosis filtration and nanofiltration in water and wastewater treatment as well as seawater desalination. In this study, a novel biofouling control strategy ...
Studying the Impact of RO Membrane Surface Functionalities on Alginate Fouling in Seawater Desalination
The objective of this research was to elucidate how specific membrane surface functionalities affect fouling by alginate in seawater desalination. Alginate adsorption on self-assembled mono-layers with -COOH, -NH 2 , -CONH ...
