Reverse osmosis is a water treatment/desalination technique that is known for producing very clean water streams. The downside of this technique is that almost all the pollutants end up in the retentate stream, meaning that a large waste stream is produced. In my research I focus on treating reverse osmosis retentate streams by making use of the fact that otherwise difficult to remove dilute pollutants are more concentrated in the retentate stream. The aim is to reduce the discharge of these pollutants from the waste streams to make the reverse osmosis process more sustainable.
