Ammonia removal from water was studied through hydrophobic hollow fiber and flat sheet membrane contactors. These hydrophobic membrane contactors were used to separate the water stream to be treated and a receiving solution. A diluted solution of sulfuric acid was used as a receiving solution to accelerate the removal of ammonia by means of a reaction converting the ammonia into ammonium sulfate ((NH4)(2)SO4), which could be recovered as a by-product [1-3].
