Performance characteristics of bio-ultrafiltration on local surface waters
Access to safe drinking water supply is still a major problem especially in remote rural areas of developing countries. These communities rely solely on untreated surface and ground waters for survival due to the lack of ...
Evaluation of micro-scaled TiO b2 s on degradation and recovery of mTiO b2 s from treated drinking water
River water is a life supporting watercourse to most communities in rural areas. It is used for both human and animal consumption, and is well becoming a collection channel for defecation and urination due to shortage or ...
Development of a small scale water treatment system for fluoride removal for rural areas
Several areas in the world such as the United States of America, Sri Lanka, China, Argentina, Canada, Tanzania, Kenya, South Africa and many others have a problem of high fluoride content in drinking water. Generally ...
Development and evaluation of woven fabric immersed membrane bioreactor for treatment of domestic waste water for re-use
Increased public concern over health and the environment, the need to expand existing wastewater treatment plants due to population increase, and increasingly stringent discharge requirements, have created a need for new ...
Optimization of the woven fibre-immersed membrane bioreactor (WF-IMBR)
In this research, the woven fibre microfiltration (WFMF) fabric which is produced locally in South Africa is used as a membrane material. It is cheaper in price in comparison with the current commercial membrane materials ...
Evaluation of a small scale water disinfection system using WFMF
Provision of microbiologically safe drinking water for people living in the rural areas of developing countries remains a major challenge to date. One of the reasons is due to the inability to access potable water mainly ...
