Seawater Reverse osmosis (SWRO) pretreatment impact on microbial growth potentialApply
Professor, Environmental Science and Engineering<br/>Director, Water Desalination and Reuse Center<br/>
Professor Vrouwenvelder studies microbiological and process technological aspects of water treatment and transport. This includes fouling control of membrane systems and cooling towers, and sensors and tools for biofouling/biofilm monitoring and rapid sensitive microbial water quality monitoring. Additionally, Professor Vrouwenvelder performs numerical modelling of fouling and water treatment system performance, and studies the dynamics of the microbial ecology of water distribution systems.
