Abstract

A multi-stage ceramic microfiltration (MF) membrane system was used for treating biodiesel wastewater. The process simulation and economic analysis of this multistage MF system were carried out in this thesis work. The simulation was run for 10 stages from different concentration factors (CF), in a programming software using algorithm constructed to find the minimum area from each stage. The CFs chosen were CF2, CF5, CF10 and CF15. After obtaining the minimum areas, an economic analysis was then carried out by calculating the total capital cost required for each stage of different CFs, to determine the optimum number of stages and optimum CF that are the most economical and sustainable to the environment. The results showed that a 4-stage ceramic MF system with either CF10 or CF15 was the optimum choice for treating biodiesel wastewater because of lesser waste (retentate) production when compared to CF2 and CF5.
