Abstract

This paper describes the research findings conducted with palm oil mill effluent and Nano membrane. This research investigated the performance of the Nano membrane (NM) in separating total organic materials (TOM) from POME. The performance of NM is measured in the scale of productivity and efficiency in producing dischargeable effluent from POME. Three NM of different pore sizes and primary POME treatment machinery have been used for the conducting of the experiment. The feed pressure of POME to NM was from 60 psi to 120 psi. The research findings demonstrated the optimum performance of NM in separating TOM about 90% at operating pressure 80 psi. The findings of this research would be useful in producing environmentally friendly effluent from POME. The novelty of this research is to use a POME feedstock of pH 7.0 with a Nanomembranes system in optimizing dischargeable effluent production performance.
