This study is to remove several organic pollutants from wastewater by non-dispersive membrane solvent extraction technique. The distribution coefficients of several solvents were determined and the experimental system was operated counter-currently and cocurrently with respect to the aqueous phase and solvent. In these experiments, as the flow rate of aqueous solution inclosed, due to being shortened contact time to solvent, the rate of removal of organic pollutants decreased and as the flow rate of solvent increased, the rate of removal increased. Meanwhile, the rate of removal of organic pollutants for the countercurrent flow system was higher than that for the occurrent flow system.
