Abstract

Membrane technology has received increasing attention for the treatment of wastewaters lately. The use of membrane system showed high demand in industries. The Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) will be used to evaluate the environmental impacts of membrane system from raw materials, continues with product development and manufacturing, and finally ends when all materials are returned to earth. This paper presents a review of researchers on LCA, membrane manufacture and application to suggest corresponding further research direction. A methodology for sustainable assessment will be developed for membrane system for wastewater treatment for small and medium enterprise (SME).
