The maintenance of people’s lifestyle against global climate change, exhaustion of groundwater, depletion of minerals, and water scarcity has instigated the recycling and reuse of water from unlikely sources. This situation has motivated researchers to develop effective technologies for treating wastewater, enabling its reuse. Water security has...

Bromate is a possible human carcinogen that does not naturally exist in surface or groundwater bodies. Its formation mostly results from ozonating bromide-containing water during wastewater treatment or drinking water production. Bromate is difficult to remove from water due to its high solubility and low reactivity in the aqueous environment;...

Brine producing industries progressively become the centre of attentionas they carry greater environmental consequences. Despite the extensiveliterature that can be found on desalination, limited information is availableabout the practical comparison of the technologies with regards to the brineconcentration performance and associated energy...

To eliminate organic micropollutants (OMPs) from (surface) water, activated carbon adsorption is a cost-effective technology to remove a broad range of OMPs without producing any byproducts. However, co-existing dissolved organic matter (DOM), at much higher concentrations (mg C/L) than OMPs (ng/L-μg/L), inducing adsorption competition, can...

Endogeneity or reverse causality in regression analysis results in biased estimation of the effects of independent variables on the dependent variable and leads to inaccurate interpretations. However, the biased estimation of the effects of psychological factors on water–related behaviours are rarely discussed. This study investigated the...

The presence of newly emerging pollutants in the aquatic environment poses great challenges for drinking water treatment plants. Due to their low concentrations and unknown characteristics, emerging pollutants cannot be efficiently removed by conventional water treatment processes, making technically, economically, and environmentally...

Bio-composite materials made from resources recovered from the water cycle are the future of the holistic approach towards sustainable wastewater treatment. The raw ingredients for these materials are coming from contaminated sources such as wastewater resources, water plants from surface water etc.. Thus, different risks like human health,...

Electrochemical water treatment is gaining increasing popularity due to its wide range of potential applications, its decreasing costs, and its suitability as a decentralized treatment alternative, but mainly due to it being considered a "green technology". In the field of municipal wastewater treatment, the use of iron electrocoagulation (Fe...

Sequential iron (as Fe<sup>2+</sup>) oxidation has been found to yield improved arsenic (as As(III)) uptake than the single-step oxidation. The objective of this study was to gain a better understanding of interactions with phosphate (PO<sub>4</sub><sup>3−</sup>) and silicate (SiO<sub>4</sub><sup>2−</sup>) during sequential Fe<sup>2+</sup>...

Selective separation of rare earth elements (REEs) from solutions of mixed heavy and light metals by solid adsorbents is an important challenge in the fields of water treatment and metal recovery. The main challenge is water instability of many adsorbents, specifically metal–organic frameworks (MOFs), and their low selectivity. Grafting...

In drinking water treatment plants, multiphase flows are a frequent phenomenon. Examples of such flows are pellet-softening and filter backwashing where liquid-solid fluidisation is applied. A better grasp of these fluidisation processes is needed to be able to determine optimal hydraulic states. In this research, models were developed, and...

Groundwater is an excellent source for the production of drinking water due to its low concentration of microorganisms and contaminants. The main contaminants present in groundwater are iron, ammonium and manganese, which are sequentially removed in rapid sand filters by a combination of biological and chemical processes. Currently, limited...

Millions of people worldwide are exposed to excessive concentrations of fluoride (F<sup>−</sup>) from groundwater sources. Ca-Al-CO<sub>3</sub> layered double hydroxides (LDHs) have shown promising defluoridation efficiency; however, defluoridation by Ca-Al-CO<sub>3</sub> LDHs is highly pH sensitive. This study showed that simultaneous...

Near-real-time event detection is crucial for water utilities to be able to detect failure events in their water treatment works (WTW) quickly and efficiently. This paper presents a new method for an automated, near-real-time recognition of failure events at WTWs by the application of combined statistical process control and machine-learning...

One framework type of high-silica zeolite only can effectively remove a limited range of organic micropollutants (OMPs) from water. In order to extend the OMP removal range, different types of high-silica zeolites need to be combined in the adsorption process. In this study, Mordernite (MOR) and ZSM-5 (MFI) high-silica zeolite powders were mixed...

Household water treatment (HWT) is one of the possible technologies to improve the quality of potable water in low–middle-income countries. However, many households still drink untreated water that leads to negative health consequences, highlighting the need for a behavioral study. This study explores the role of eight socio-economic...

Granular activated carbon (GAC) filtration is an important unit operation in drinking water treatment. GAC filtration is widely used for its filtration and adsorption capabilities as a barrier for undesired organic macro- and micro-pollutants. GAC filtration consists of two successive phases: adsorption and filtration, capturing the impurities...

Generally, abstracted groundwater is aerated, leading to iron (Fe<sup>2+</sup>) oxidation to Fe<sup>3+</sup> and precipitation as Fe<sup>3+</sup>-(hydr)oxide (HFO) flocs. This practice of passive groundwater treatment, however, is not considered a barrier for arsenic (As), as removal efficiencies vary widely (15–95%), depending on Fe/As ratio...

Fluid flow through a bed of solid particles is an important process that occurs in full-scale water treatment operations. The Carman–Kozeny model remains highly popular for estimating the resistance across the bed. It is common practice to use particle shape factors in fixed bed state to match the predicted drag coefficient with experimentally...

Reverse osmosis (RO) is the most promising membrane technology in organic micropollutants (MPs) removal of drinking water treatment. For 78 MPs, passage and removal were evaluated with an ESPA3 RO membrane and the robustness of RO against MPs was studied. The MPs were classified according to their charge and hydrophobicity. The results showed...
