  1. 1. Towards Energy-Efficient Drinking Water Production using Biomimicry

    University dissertation from ; Chalmers tekniska högskola; Gothenburg

    Author : Simon Isaksson; [2017]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Filter; Membrane Protein; Supported Lipid Bilayer; Drinking Water; Water Treatment; Silica; Aquaporin; Liposome; Biomimicry;

    Abstract : Water is a prerequisite for life and we therefore need pure drinking water to survive. Yet there are more than half a billion people that do not have access to pure drinking water. Water treatment can be performed in many different ways, one of the most commonly used being filtration. READ MORE

  2. 2. Risk Assessment and Decision Support for Managing Drinking Water Systems

    University dissertation from ; Chalmers tekniska högskola; Gothenburg

    Author : Andreas Lindhe; [2010]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; drinking water; risk assessment; decision analysis; water safety plan; water supply; multi-criteria decision analysis; dynamic fault tree analysis;

    Abstract : The vital importance of a reliable and safe drinking water supply makes efficient risk management necessary for water utilities. Risks must be assessed and possible risk-reduction measures evaluated to provide relevant decision support. READ MORE

  3. 3. Partial renewal of granular activated carbon filters for improved drinking water treatment

    University dissertation from ; Chalmers tekniska högskola; Gothenburg

    Author : Nashita Moona; [2017]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Biofiltration; Drinking water treatment; Spectroscopic properties; Granular activated carbon filter; Natural organic matter; Online monitoring; Fluorescence;

    Abstract : Drinking water is widely collected from surface water sources. In these water sources, both the quantity and quality of natural organic matter (NOM) have been affected around the world during the last decades, especially in Northern Europe and North America. READ MORE

  4. 4. Integrated and Probabilistic Risk Analysis of Drinking Water Systems

    University dissertation from ; Chalmers tekniska högskola; Gothenburg

    Author : Andreas Lindhe; [2008]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; water safety plan; customer minutes lost; probabilistic; fault tree analysis; risk analysis; risk; integrated; drinking water system; hazard; uncertainty;

    Abstract : Drinking water supply is an essential public function but is at the same time exposed to risks. Since a totally risk-free society is not attainable, risks need to be managed efficiently to achieve an acceptable level of risk. READ MORE

  5. 5. Wastewater discharges and microbial variability in a surface water source

    University dissertation from ; Chalmers tekniska högskola; Gothenburg

    Author : Johan Åström; [2008]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; faecal indicators; pathogens; drinking-water; microbial risk assessment; variability; rainfall; catchment; wastewater; surface water; Hazardous events;

    Abstract : Planning for drinking-water safety in surface waters includes a systematic assessment of hazards in the catchment, and microbial contamination is considered a major health risk. The aim of this thesis was to identify and characterize microbial hazardous events reported for River Göta älv, Sweden. READ MORE
