There are more than 160,000 recreational crafts in the Netherlands with a toilet on board. It is forbidden to discharge blackwater into the environment from these crafts. Stricter enforcement of the law by the sealing of the valves of the external drain, leaves the owners of these crafts with a major problem. It is allowed, however, to treat the...

In this research, a few initiatives were completed with practical industrial information and water samples from Heineken®. A Python model was built for an imaginary bottle washer, and tested with difference operational variables under the four testing scenarios. Based on the operational information fromthe Spanish brewery, a second Python model...

Over the last decade, a wide range of organic micropollutants (OMP) has been regularly detected in surface water, groundwater and wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) effluent. These OMPs consist mainly of synthetic organic compounds (SOC) such as pharmaceuticals and pesticides. Although their concentrations in water bodies are usually low, they...

Colloidal fouling has attracted increasing interest in the membrane field. Oil and water (O/W) emulsion droplet and Extracellular polymeric substance (EPS) are significant colloids in produced water and surface water, respectively. Oily wastewater is produced in many industrial processes such as oil and gas extraction processes, and can take a...

Climate change, population growth and urbanisation contribute to an increasing demand for freshwater resources. In order to face this challenge, stormwater harvesting for aquifer storage and recovery has gained interest over the past decades. However, pollutants from various surfaces are transported with the runoff, posing a threat for receiving...

Zeolites can be used for the adsorption of organic micropollutants (OMPs) from water. In this research, the potential applications of zeolite granules for OMP removal in wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) were discovered. The adsorption of 18 target OMPs by zeolite granules was fully studied in batch and column experiments. The adsorption...

New techniques are urgently demanded to remove organic micropollutants (OMPs) such as endocrine disrupting compounds, pharmaceuticals and pesticides from our drinking water sources. With increasing salinity of surface waters in coastal regions, salt removal has also become an issue in the production of drinking water. When advanced oxidation...

Pressure on fresh water resources has led to water scarcity and increasing demand for alternative water resources, such as rainwater. Nevertheless, heavy metal contamination is a limiting factor for re-use of urban stormwater. This research focusses on the adsorption of heavy metal contaminants by biofiltration systems, specifically on the...

Microorganisms may cause problems in drinking water distribution system (DWDS). It is hard to control and always forms the biofilm, which can result in the deterioration of drinking water quality. At household’s tap, due to the favorable conditions, which incurs an easier formation of biofilm. Therefore, the idea of secondary disinfection at...

Water is an important resource in many industries in the world. Due to emerging regulatory framework, change in consumer’s perspective and increasing costs for water, industries are forced to move towards sustainable water use. Nowadays, improvements in the brewery industry are focussed on increasing the efficiency of the processes or treating...

In this thesis, direct application of hollow fiber nanofiltration on surface water is suggested as an efficacious method for surface water treatment. This thesis was carried out as a collaborative effort between Lenntech B.V. and TU Delft. The current research aims to assess the performance of these membranes as a potential solution for surface...

The presence of organic and inorganic contaminants in aquatic ecosystem has been threat to public health and environment. To produce drinking water, removal of natural organic matter has been of importance due to formation of DBPs. Of the many available treatments, ion exchange (IEX) has the potential to remove natural organic matter (NOM)....

Brine that is produced during reverse osmosis (RO) could be further concentrated by another RO step. In the absence of bivalent cations, silica is a limiting factor because a high concentration of silica can cause irreversible fouling of the membranes. To prevent silica scale formation during the further concentration of brine with RO, silica...
