Novel forward osmosis process for effective removal of heavy metal ions Novel forward osmosis process for effective removal of heavy metal ions

The forward osmosis (FO) process reported here has great potential to remove heavy metal ions from wastewater, and can maintain high rejection under high concentrations of heavy metal ions.

Modifications to activated sludge process to improve simultaneous removal of diverse micropollutants Modifications to activated sludge process to improve simultaneous removal of diverse micropollutants

A range of organic and inorganic micropollutants known to be preferentially removed via different mechanisms were selected to challenge the activated sludge process (ASP), and determine its potential to achieve simultaneous micropollutant removal. Enhanced removal of micropollutants can be achieved by modifying process operation.
