Modeling and Life Cycle Assessment of a Membrane Bioreactor–Membrane Distillation Wastewater Treatment System for Potable Reuse
Wastewater treatment for indirect potable reuse (IPR) is a possible approach to address water scarcity. In this study, a novel membrane bioreactor–membrane distillation (MBR-MD) system was evaluated


Potable Water Reuse through Advanced Membrane Technology.
The current status and future perspectives of advanced membrane processes to meet potable water reuse are highlighted and opportunities and challenges are identified in the context of water reuse.
Direct potable reuse – a feasible water management option
Direct potable reuse (DPR) can be more economic than indirect potable reuse as no environmental buffer is needed and conveyance and blending of the purified water with other potable sources is
Energy consumption and recovery in reverse osmosis
Energy consumption is a key factor which influences the freshwater production cost in reverse osmosis (RO) process. Energy recovery and reuse options have already been very well explored in the
Drinking water through recycling: the benefits and costs of supplying direct to the distribution system
This report argues that returning highly treated wastewater directly into Australia's drinking water supply could have considerable economic and environmental benefits. Executive summary Supplying
Cost and energy intensity of U.S. potable water reuse systems
This paper reports on a new and open-source dataset, curated from facility-specific engineering reports, that details facility features for an aggregated total of 70 operating, demonstration, pilot
Review of cost versus scale: water and wastewater treatment and reuse processes.
Information on the cost of unit treatment processes potentially useful for DPR versus system capacity was reviewed and a logarithmic variant of the Williams Law cost function was found applicable over orders of magnitude of system capacity.
Environmental Issues of Desalination
Environmental issues related to desalination are a major factor in the design and implementation of desalination technologies. An acceptable desalination plant is expected to meet environmental
Potable reuse treatment trains throughout the world
The importance of environmental buffers as a treatment barrier and as a distinction between ‘indirect’ and ‘direct’ potable reuse applications are illustrated.
