The effective treatment of complex industrial wastestreams such as PW is important to ensure clean water. Membranes can play a key role in this process, but membrane fouling remains a major problem. We propose that surface chemistry plays a key role here, and that control over the surface chemistry of the emulsion and the membrane can substantially alleviate fouling.
