Electro-oxidation as efficient pretreatment to minimize the membrane fouling in water reuse processes​

Theme: Technology Authors: Purnell, S., Ebdon, J., Buck, A. Tupper, M., Taylor, H. Abstract: The effluent from a wastewater treatment plant was pretreated with an electrochemical cell using boron doped diamond (BDD) electrodes in order to control the fouling of an ultrafiltration membrane. The results showed that the electrochemical pretreatment decreased 36–67% the transmembrane pressure (TMP), and…
