Membrane fouling: Integration of nanofiltration in new applications is hampered by membrane fouling. To understand and control the fouling phenomenon, thorough membrane characterization is necessary. This study presents an overview of several physico-chemical characterization techniques, applied on commercial (see figure) and laboratory-made membranes.
