Nowadays, the pollution of water from oily wastewater is increasing worldwide and needs to be addressed, as this can lead to deterioration in water quality. Settlements waste usually contains a mixture of rain water, oil containing oil, drilling mud, as well as drainage water, chemical residues and more. Industrial wastewater includes waste from the main refinery plants, as well as auxiliary facilities, tank refueling, ballast and petroleum tanker refuse, loading station and port fluid, dump trucks, and the area of ​​refineries tanks (embankments - retention basins).Various techniques have been used to purify and renew water for deposition at sea or for agricultural purposes, but with limitations. Among these techniques, membrane technology has promised to solve problems.The present work examines advanced membrane technology for the treatment of both seawater and oily wastewater. In particular, the filtrate flow associated with the temperature, pressure and transverse flow of a ceramic tubular membrane and the final concentrations of treated seawater are compared and investigated.Experimental tests were conducted at the University of Stavanger, in Norway using MF Al2O3 ceramic membrane, provided by Atech Innovations.
