It may seem paradoxical, but processes used to clean water actually also create wastewater. Reverse Osmosis creates clean water by forcing the water through a semipermeable membrane that filters out many moleclues. The problem is with the water that`s left, that does not pass through the membrane, which has an extremely high concentration of salts and minerals. This water is called RO reject or reverse osmosis concentrate. Reverse Osmosis reject can sometimes equal as much as half the volume of the...

Reverse Osmosis (RO) technology has been used for years in various industries to separate dissolved solids from water by forcing the water through a semi-permeable membrane. RO is also commonly used to purify drinking water and desalinate seawater to yield potable water. The water and other molecules with lower molecular weight (specific weight of molecules allowed to pass through is dependent on the selected membrane) pass through the micropores in the membrane, yielding a purified water stream called the...

The purpose of de-chlorination is the removal of free chlorine and combined chlorine compounds from potable water, as supplied by municipal water supplies. Chlorine will oxidize the surface of thin film composite polyamide membranes, causing the membrane to lose its ability to repel or reject salts. As a result, the membranes used in Reverse Osmosis (RO) or Electro-deionisation (EDI) systems will exhibit shorter lifetimes when exposed to chlorine in the water they are treating and membrane manufacturers will...
