John E. Wentz, Shiv G. Kapoor, Richard E. DeVor, Nandakishore Rajagopalan

Research output: Book/Report/Conference proceedingTechnical report


This research seeks to investigate the applicability of microfiltration technology by investigating the membrane fouling mechanisms at work in the system. It also aims to reduce fouling through adjustment of operating parameters and the design of a new semi-synthetic MWF that significantly reduces the impact of membrane fouling.
