Assessment and optimisation of N nitrosamine rejection by reverse osmosis for planned potable water recycling applications

Grant


Scheme


  • Linkage Projects

Abstract


  • The protection of public health from emerging contaminants at trace level concentration is of paramount priority to the water industry. This research will enhance the capabilities of advanced water treatment plant designers and operators to control the disinfection by product N-nitrosamines by optimised reverse osmosis treatment. Factors influencing the removal of N-nitrosamines by reverse osmosis membranes will be systematically elucidated, thus allowing for enhanced process efficiency, particularly with respect to N-nitrosamine removal. An additional outcome from the proposed research is a new analytical tool for sensitive, reliable, and affordable monitoring of N-nitrosamines during planned potable water recycling.
