The recent studies regarding the membrane technologies indicate that the membrane process applications involve for providing the high quality drinking water and increasing the use of industrial water consumption. Within this scope, it has been considered that membrane treatment systems are necessary for removing the bacteria, viruses, suspended solids causing the high turbidity in water resources and heavy metals such as arsenic and cadmium. In this study, the possibility of using AgNP-PS composite membrane system producing for treatment of waste waters generated from underground coal mining works in Kozlu Hard Coal Basin, Turkey will be investigated. The average 11000 m3 of the waste waters are pumped from 500 meters of underground to surface, daily. The UF membrane filtration system used in the experimental studies was composed of the capillary hollow fiber UF membrane module equipped with Polyethersulphone (PES) membranes purchased from IMT membranes, Holland. In the first stage of the study, commercial membrane was employed and various water quality parameters such as turbidity, conductivity, TSS, Total coliforms, pH, temperature, Total Dissolved Matters, COD and Cadmium concentrations were detected before and after the waste water treated, and each of the membrane performance were calculated. In the second stage of the study, the polysulfone (PS) composite UF membrane will be prepared by phase inversion technique to treat the waste waters and to compare the water quality results obtained from the commercially available UF membrane.
