  2. Algal Blooms and Membrane Based Desalination Technology

    UNESCO-IHE PhD Thesis

    By Loreen Ople Villacorte

    Seawater desalination is rapidly growing in terms of installed capacity (~80 million m3/day in 2013), plant size and global application. An emerging threat to this technology is the seasonal proliferation of microscopic algae in seawater known as algal blooms. Such blooms have caused operational...
