Abstract Organic fouling of ultrafiltration (UF) membranes results in decreased water flux and increased energy requirements. Modification of UF membrane surfaces is one possible method to mitigate natural organic matter (NOM) fouling, yet to date; most modifications have been passive. In this study, we investigate the use of a carbon nanotube-polyvinylidene fluoride (CNT-PVDF) porous non-Faradaic cathode on top of a UF membrane to actively produce negative surface charges via capacitive… CONTINUE READING
