  • Biofouling of Spiral Wound Membrane Systems

    Biofouling of Spiral Wound Membrane Systems

    The study of membrane biofouling has increased strongly in the past four years, compared to the previous twenty two years, indicated by the more than doubling of the number of scientifi c papers. However, no single source gives an updated overview of biofouling. Biofouling of Spiral Wound Membrane Systems gives a complete and comprehensive overview of all aspects of biofouling, bridging the gap between microbiology, hydraulics and membrane ...

  • Science and Technology of Industrial Water Treatment

    Science and Technology of Industrial Water Treatment

    Featuring the contributions of industrial and academic experts, this volume discusses the fundamental and practical aspects of industrial water treatment. After an overview of water chemistry and the characteristics of mineral scales, the book addresses the formation and control of different scales in various systems. It covers membrane-based separation processes, reverse osmosis systems, and scale control in thermal distillation processes. It ...

  • Efficient Desalination by Reverse Osmosis: A best practice guide to RO

    Efficient Desalination by Reverse Osmosis: A best practice guide to RO

    Early applications of desalination were small-scale plants deploying a range of technologies. However with the technological developments in Reverse Osmosis, most new plants use this technology because it has a proven history of use and low energy and capital costs compared with other available desalination technologies.   This has led to the recent trend for larger seawater desalination plants in an effort to further reduce costs, and 1000 MLD ...

  • Membrane Based Desalination: An Integrated Approach

    Membrane Based Desalination: An Integrated Approach

    Reverse Osmosis is the dominant technology in water desalination. However, some critical issues remain open: improvement of water quality, enhancement of the recovery factor, reduction of the unit water cost, minimizing the brine disposal impact. This book aims to solve these problems with an innovative approach based on the integration of different membrane operations in pre-treatment and post-treatment stages. Membrane-Based Desalination: An ...
