The uncontrolled development of a great diversity of microorganisms on the active layer of the membranes causes serious problems in the operation of this type of potabilising plant.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10553/46518||ISSN:||0211-8173||Source:||Tecnologia del Agua[ISSN 0211-8173],v. 21, p. 22-26|
