NOM Rejection by, and Fouling of, NF and UF Membranes

  • Published 2010


OBJECTIVES: The performance of spiral-wound nanofiltration (NF) and ultrafiltration (UF) membranes was investigated in terms of natural organic matter (NOM) rejection and associated NOM fouling. The study objectives focused on • demonstrating the effects of both hydrophobic and electrostatic interactions between NOM components and the membrane surface • determining influential factors (water quality and operational) in NOM rejection and flux-decline • determining major foulant components of NOM • developing NOM-rejection prediction equations and flux-decline (NOM adsorption) models
