Abstract:

This final report presents the results of a project entitled Evaluation of New Reverse-Osmosis Membranes for the Separation of Toxic Compounds from Wastewater. The objectives of the third and last year of this study were to evaluate the engineering parameters involved in applying the NS- 100 membrane to the treatment of wastewater. The tasks included optimizing the casting of tubular NS-100 membranes, evaluating the chemical stability of NS-100 toward oxidants, studying the effects of additives on the ability of the membrane to maintain its performance, and developing a computer program for the design of a large treatment plant using the results of tests on single tubes and tubular modules.
