Use of Heated Metal Oxide Particles as Adsorbents for Membrane Fouling Reduction in Water Reuse and Desalination Applications
Ms. Kristan VandenHeuvel
Researchers examined heated metal oxide particles (HMOPs), which include heated aluminum oxide particles (HAOPs) and heated iron oxide particles (HIOPs), both of which part of this relatively new class of adsorbents. HMOPs offer a novel solution to maintain membrane permeate flux and remove organic carbon for reducing membrane fouling, a major obstacle to efficient membrane treatment.
