The aim of this study is to develop reliable techniques to assess pre-treatment performance in limiting transparent exopolymer particles (TEP) and phosphate nutrients in the RO feed water of integrated membrane systems (IMS). The ultimate goal is to make use of these techniques in building up a strategy to control or possibly eliminate organic and biological fouling due in RO systems.
