    Conventional Drinking Water Treatment Plants (DWTPs) have a fairly standard sequence of processes which essentially consist of solid separation using either physical processes such as settling and filtration, or chemical ...
  • Removal of radionuclides in drinking water by membrane treatment using ultrafiltration, reverse osmosis and electrodialysis reversal 

    Montaña Gurrera, Montserrat; Camacho García, Antonia; Serrano Carreño, M. Isabel; Devesa, Ricard; Matia, L.; Valles, I. (Elsevier, 2013-11)

    A pilot plant had been built to test the behaviour of ultra fi ltration (UF), reverse osmosis (RO), and electrodialysis reversal (EDR) in order to improve the quality of the water supplied to Barcelona met- ropolitan ...
  • The presence of radionuclides in wastewater treatment plants in spain and their effect on human health 

    Montaña Gurrera, Montserrat; Camacho García, Antonia; Devesa, Ricard; Valles Murciano, M. Isabel; Cespedes, R.; Serrano Carreño, M. Isabel; Blázquez Pérez, Sonia M.; Barjola Molina, Vanessa (2013-12-01)
