Membrane water and wastewater treatment features prominently in the research project progress
reports from graduate students who received funding for the US National Water Research Institute
(NWRI) Fellowship Program for the academic year 2011-2012.
The report summaries have been made available for download by NWRI.
Among the updates are those for research on:
Evaluation of Coal Derived Organic Fouling of Desalination Membranes by Coalbed
Methane Produced Water
Nitrate and Phosphorous Removal from Waste Streams Using a Microalgae-Based Membrane
Bioreactor with Improved Anti-Fouling Design
Biofouling of Forward Osmosis Membranes: Mechanisms and Fouling Control
Nanocomposite Polymeric Membranes for Enhanced Water and Energy Production in
Membrane-Based Separation Processes
Water Desalination by Reverse Osmosis with Nanostructured Polymers.
