Summary: Organic micro-pollutants such as pharmaceuticals and personal care products are emerging contaminants in water bodies that are currently causing much concern because of the potential health risks to non-target species particularly in aquatic environments. Membrane technology is currently growing at a great rate due to its excellent ability to remove contaminants and smaller footprint requiring less space compared to in water reuse applications due to its greater efficiency in removing contaminants including organic micro-pollutants. The results of the study would provide useful information to number of water reclamation plants in designing appropriate measures to reduce organic micro-pollutants concentrations in ROC before discharge.
