About

The aim of this program is to introduce students to cutting-edge research and graduate education in water sciences, aimed at improving human life in drylands through technologies and policies for the sustainable use of water resources. The Hydrology and Water Quality - Desalination and Water Treatment program is offered by the Ben-Gurion University of the Negev.

Overview

This specialization emphasizes improving, modifying and designing desalination and water treatment systems using mostly membrane-based methods. The Hydrology and Water Quality - Desalination and Water Treatment program is offered by the Ben-Gurion University of the Negev.

Research topics include the engineering of membranes for water (sea, brackish and wastewater) treatment and improving the energy efficiency of membrane-based water treatment methods. 

Research Topics

Additional directly-related topics include the chemistry of membranes tailored for specific types of water and special treatment methodology, membrane modification and new membrane development, and the pre- and post-treatment of water in desalination plants. 

Basic research is conducted on interactions between organic and inorganic compounds, as well as on colloids associated with reverse osmosis membranes, membrane treatment for contaminated groundwater, and membrane-based wastewater (municipal and industrial) treatment. 

Further topics address fundamental research on the interactions between bacteria and surfaces (particularly membrane surfaces), as well as understanding the mechanisms of biofilm formation to eliminate the biofouling of membrane-based water reclamation systems.
