Abstract: Ultrafiltration alone can remove only a portion of the effluent organic matter (EfOM) from biologically treated sewage effluent (BTSE). Use of pretreatment not only improves the EfOM removal but also reduces the membrane fouling. In this research, NTR 7410 ultrafiltration membrane was employed to remove EfOM from BTSE. Different pretreatments namely FeCl(3) flocculation and powder activated carbon adsorption were evaluated. The highest removal of organic matter was observed when flocculation followed by adsorp…
