Comparing two adjacent full-scale drinking water membrane plants
The control of fouling is key to sustainable membrane operation. This study compares pretreatment for two ultrafiltration (UF) plants treating the same source water (Lake Ontario). By reducing fouling, the use of biofiltration as a pretreatment has the potential to reduce chemical usage for, and waste generation from, membrane processes, thus co...
