It can be envisaged that a series system using two technologies can be advantageous in improving the overall efficiency and performance. Two proposed configurations were studied in this chapter: (1) adsorption followed by nanofiltration and (2) advance oxidation followed by nanofiltration. Quantitative comparison of the performance of both of these hybrid methods is elaborated in detail in this chapter.
