Improvement of Techniques for Assessing RO Membrane Colloidal Fouling / Industrial Funding MEDRC, Oman


The objectives of this project are to generate reliable fouling data in the laboratory using RO membranes under realistic, yet, well controlled conditions.  In parallel, to investigate variations or modifications of existing fouling indices towards the development of improved ones, by performing filtration experiments, with the same types of feed-waters and with a variety of membranes and conditions. Finally, to assess the performance of existing or newly developed  indices on the basis of the RO and UF fouling data, and propose promising ones.
