Composition and reversibility of fouling on low-pressure membranes in the filtration of coagulated water: insights into organic fractions behaviour Gibert Agulló, Oriol; Lefevre, Benoit; Ferrer Mallén, Olga; Prats, Guillem; Bernat Camí, Xavier; Paraira Cardona, Miquel (2016-11-01)
Open AccessThe primary problem for the application of microfiltration (MF) and ultrafiltration (UF) membrane technology is membrane fouling. Such is the case that understanding membrane fouling has become one of the major factors ...

Open AccessBackground The feasibility and competitiveness of substituting the conventional pre-treatment of drinking water treatment plants (dioxichlorination, coagulation/flocculation, settling, sand filtration) by raw river water ...
Reversibility of fouling on ultrafiltration membrane by backwashing and chemical cleaning: differences in organic fractions behaviour Ferrer Mallén, Olga; Lefevre, Benoit; Prats, Guillem; Bernat Camí, Xavier; Gibert Agulló, Oriol; Paraira Cardona, Miquel (2016-05-20)
Open AccessMembrane fouling is an inherent phenomenon in ultrafiltration (UF) membrane processes, making it necessary to periodically perform backwashes (BW) and chemical cleanings in place (CIP) to restore the initial permeability ...
Substitution of conventional pre-treatment units by membrane based processes in drinking water treatment Ferrer Mallén, Olga (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2015-12-22)
Open AccessThis thesis focused on the feasibility of substituting, partially or totally, drinking water treatment plant (DWTP) conventional pre-treatment by membrane based units, in particular by ultrafiltration (UF). For such purpose, ...
