Biofilm increases permeate quality in low pressure ultrafiltration due to carbon degradation
This study investigated the extent of fouling and concentration polarization due to Natural Organic Matter (NOM) of various compositions in the NF and UF membranes with molecular weight cut offs (MWCOs) ranging from 150 to 8,000 Da. NOM substances were represented by polysaccharide alginate and humic substances derived from Suwannee River (SRNOM). ...
