DISINFECTION USING MICROFILTRATION FOR RECLAMATION APPLICATIONS AND AS ALTERNATIVE TO CHEMICAL DISINFECTION
Abstract:Microfiltration (MF) is gaining popularity as a process for providing “physical disinfection” and clarification. In the wastewater industry, this has applicability both as part of a reclamation process, and as a potential means of physically disinfecting wastewater for direct discharge without the use of chemical disinfection. This paper presents results from pilot testing of MF for removal of bacteria, other microorganisms, and suspended solids from primary wastewater effluent. More detailed results are presented elsewhere (Carollo Engineers, 2001; Juby et al., 2000).
