Thesis Topic/Title
Monitoring of Recalcitrant Compounds from a Wastewater Reclamation Plant by Gas Chromatography - Mass Spectrometry

Description

Wetalla reclamation plant is a Biological Nutrient Removal (BNR) process treating municipal wastewater from Toowoomba region. The plant includes membranes such as reverse osmosis to reclaim water for the local industries. This project will sample the water at every stage of the process and monitor the non-biodegradable compounds by Gas Chromatography - Mass Spectrometry in order to shed more light on the recalcitrant and soluble microbial products produced by bacteria during the process. It will also reveal the organic compounds causing fouling of the membranes.
