Abstract

Field data from several research sites related to effluent quality; surface water and back-washed membrane filtrate enables to provide performance estimates efficiencies. The estimates are based on the Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) method. The exploration focused on individual Ultra-Filtration (UF) and MicroFiltration (MF) experiments allowing determining the membrane performance efficiency in terms of Cryptosporidium and Giardia removal by membrane processes. DEA is an empirically based methodology and the research approach has been found to be effective in the depiction and analysis of complex systems efficiency, where a large number of mutual interacting variables are involved.
