University of Bahrain (UOB) and University of Oxford (UOX) Collaborative Research Activities

    The overall aim of the project is to develop new strategies for reducing energy consumption during pre and post treatment for RO plants. Specifically through the conducting an in-depth survey of current pre-treatment technologies, to ascertain their limitations and potential for improvement. This should help to develop new membranes, which are bio-fouling resistant and offer high selectivity for boron and chloride removal while maintaining high permeability.

    The four years project aim to establish long-term institutional collaborative research activities and knowledge dissemination in the topics of Water and Energy between UOB and UOX, through conducting joint research and development project, co-supervising joint Ph.D. projects and to encouraging international meetings and conferences in the area of Energy and Water.
