Strategies for controlling biofouling in membrane filtration systems: challenges and opportunities

Jaleh Mansouri, Simon Harrisson and Vicki Chen

School of Chemical Engineering, The University of New south Wales, Sydney, Australia.

Abstract

Biofouling is a critical problem in many membrane filtration processes. This review highlights the emerging strategies for polymer membrane modifications using organic and inorganic additives and surface modification to mitigate foulant deposition and biofilm formation. Constraints and opportunities for future implementation in membrane systems are outlined from the perspectives of water and wastewater treatment applications.
