  1. 16. Safe drinking water in a changing environment : Membrane filtration in a Swedish context

    University dissertation from Water Resources Engineering, Lund University

    Author : ANGELICA LIDÉN; [2016]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Boreal lakes; Drinking water; Nanofiltration; Natural organic matter; Ultrafiltration;

    Abstract : Surface water is vital for Swedish drinking water supply. In the past decades, a trend of increased total organic carbon (TOC) concentrations has led to higher consumption of coagulants in drinking water treatment, and has pushed the levels in the outgoing water closer to the allowed levels of TOC.

    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Natural organic matter NOM ; drinking water; ultrafiltration; nanofiltration; autopsy; modelling;

    Abstract : Natural organic matter (NOM) is found in all surface, ground, and soil waters. During recent decades, reports worldwide show a continuing increase in the color and NOM of the surface water, which has an adverse effect on drinking water purification. For several practical and hygienic reasons, the presence of NOM is undesirable in drinking water. READ MORE

  5. 20. Arsenic in tubewell water of Bangladesh and approaches for sustainable mitigation

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH
