Chemical Chemical Security Security Program Program The Role

Chemical Chemical Security Security Program Program The Role of Chemistry and Materials Science in Advanced Water Treatment Sandia is a multi-program laboratory operated by Sandia Corporation, a Lockheed Martin Company, for the United States Department of Energys National Nuclear Security Administration under contract DE-AC04-94AL85000. The Role of Chemistry and Materials Science in Advanced Water Treatment Materials Science is an Essential Part of Water Treatment Infrastructure

Introduction Water treatment processes Materials science for water infrastructure Membrane technology- polymeric Micro and ultrafiltration (MF and UF) Nanofiltration and reverse osmosis (NF and RO) Recent RO membrane advances 3 Materials Science has a Dramatic Effect on Water Treatment Infrastructure Glass reinforced plastics - corrosion Source : U.S. Filter

Pump coatings - friction reduction Pipe lining trenchless technology Composite pumps corrosion resistant Steel alloys (Duplex SS)- corrosion resistant Polymers, resins, additivestreatment Polymeric membranes- porous: water purification, nonporous: desalination- pressure driven 4 Membranes have Revolutionized Water Treatment equipment/mf_uf_mbr/zeeweed_5 00.jsp nologies/ro/index.htm#

5 Membrane Separation Spectrum Dissolved salts Nonporous Suspended solids/ DOM Porous Virus Bacteria Porous: Filtration by size - molecular weight cutoff (MWCO). Nonporous: Solution diffusion separation hydrated ions. Removal: Salinity can be reduced only by RO/NF membrane treatment.

6 Basic Water Treatment Removes Particles and Dissolved Organics Coagulant Coagulation Flocculation Sedimentation and or filtration Removal of particles and natural organic matter (NOM), color, disinfection byproducts (DBP), iron, manganese, arsenic, taste, odor.

Granular activated carbon can be used as a filter and adsorber, but regeneration may be different than sand media. 7 Microfiltration (MF) and Ultrafiltration (UF) can be used Instead of Sand Filters Coagulant Microfiltration or Ultrafiltration concentrate Coagulation Flocculation

Membrane filtration normally uses hollow fiber bundles that can be submerged or pressurized. These membranes can be air scoured , backflushed and cleaned and are not usually sensitive to chlorine. 8 Hollow Fiber Units Consist of Tube Bundles (UF-MF) Pressurized in housing Source : Pall Asymmetric membranes are formed by phase inversion and

Zhang, Mehmet Sankir, James E. McGrath 21 Conclusion Polymer science and composite fabrication have lead to increased use of membranes and advanced materials in water treatment. Microfiltration and Ultrafiltration membranes have provided compact, efficient means of removing suspended solids and wastewater contaminants. Nanofiltration and RO membranes provide lower energy alternatives for water desalination.
