Fouling of RO membranes is examined one at lab scale with the emphasis on investigating the changes in the relative composition of foulant material as a function of running time for a given feed water quality. Fouling characterization was performed by ultra-structural, chemical and microbial analyses. This comparative analysis of fouled membranes helped to identifying the dynamics of fouling in this water source.
