Synopsis

Natural Organics Removal Using Membranes Principles, Performance and Cost by Andrea Schafer

Natural Organics Removal Using Membranes: Principles, Performance, and Cost provides a unique combination of important new data and operational parameters on the role of membranes in removing natural organic materials during water treatment. It examines and compares the three pressure-driven membrane processes of choice-ultrafiltration, microfiltration, and nanofiltration-in removing natural organics, including disinfection by-products and compounds implicated as carcinogens. After presenting a detailed investigation of natural organics, the text follows with a careful analysis of the efficiencies and operating conditions of the main membrane processes, including discussions of costs and fouling. This reference book introduces membranes in water treatment and shows how various methods can be compared with regard to improving process design, reducing fouling, and selecting the most suitable process, given a variety of source water parameters. The book contains a most comprehensive literature survey on membranes, one that should be of great value to all investigators of membranes in drinking water.

Reviews

Membrane technology is rapidly becoming the preferred method for water treatment. The past decade has seen an exponential growth in the number of membrane-based plants in operation and this growth seems unabated. The reasons for this are many including the recognition that membranes can provide a more complete barrier to pathogens, that the product water quality is less dependent on the feed quality and that membrane plant are compact with modest energy demand. This book is very timely and provides a mine of information for the reader. We are sure you will find the journey a rewarding one. -Professor Tony Fane and Professor David Waite, from the foreword
