Abstract

Membrane Technology in Wastewater Treatments

Water shortage is rapidly becoming a global problem, as climate change and increasing urban population are defining more waterstressed areas. This leads, in turn, to a lower water quality since a higher demand arises. Therefore, novel systems are required in order to provide safe water: one option can be wastewater reclamation through the implementation of membrane filtration. Nowadays, membranes are present in wastewater treatment both in biological oxidation as an hybrid system known as Membrane BioReactor (MBR), and in advanced treatment as pure membrane filtration. For instance, new large treatment plants have been installed in the last years, such as in Singapore, Israel and Spain.
