Scholarcy highlights

  • Greywater and produced water are undoubtedly valuable resources for reclaimed water, which can lessen the burden on use of freshwater
  • A novel and facile method is successfully developed for modification of polypropylene microfiltration membrane via surface coating with sericin for imparting better antifouling properties
  • In a comparative study with synthetic greywater, the sericin‐coated membrane removed <90% turbidity and produced a greater volume of purified water with 15% less fouling compared to the uncoated membrane
  • The fouling experiment concludes that the sericin‐coated membrane can reduce reversible and irreversible fouling by ≈30% and ≈83.00%, respectively, relative to the uncoated membrane using pure water backwash operation
