Summary and Info
Now and in the futre, the ever-growing demand for drinking water will lead many cities to implement indirect water reuse programs, where wastewater effluent becomes part of the drinking water sources pollution of those sources with emerging contaminants (micropollutants) suchas endocrine disrupting compounds, pharmaceutically active compounds, pesticides and personal care products is a fact known worldwide. Although the risks of micropollutants in sources of water are partly recognized, interpretation of consequences are controversial; thus, the future effects of altered water with micropollutants remains uncertain and may constitute a oint of concern for human beings when potable water consumption is involved. Therefore, many drinking water utilities target as an important goal high-quality drinking water production to lesson quality considerations that may arise from the consumers. In this thesis, nanofiltration (NF) and reverese osmosis (RO) are demonstrated to be appropriate technologies for removing a lafge number of micropollutants; however, the performance of NF and Ro can be questioned because there are limited tools that optimese quantification of the removal of contaminants. Therefore, in this thesis, by means of the use of multivariate data analysis techniques, removal quantification is effectively determined and more understanding of the separation of micropollutants by membranes is acheived. --Book Jacket.
