removal with membrane-based technologies

Project description:

Recently, the number and occurrence of potentially hazardous micropollutants (MPs) in surface water has raised as a result of increased economic activity and the usage of pharmaceuticals and other substances in society. The presence of these organic anthropogenic compounds represents a risk for human health; therefore, achieving efficient removal of MPs from surface water is crucial to produce safe drinking water.

The aim of this project is to increase the understanding of micropollutant removal using nanofiltration (NF) and reverse osmosis (RO) systems.
