The work presented in this paper summarizes the performance of subsystems used during an integrated advanced water recovery system test conducted by the Crew and Thermal Systems Division (CTSD) at NASA-Johnson Space Center (JSC). The overall objective of this test was to demonstrate the capability of an integrated advanced water recovery system to produce potable quality water for at least six months. Each subsystem was designed for operation in microgravity. The primary treatment system consisted of a biological system for organic carbon and ammonia removal. Dissolved solids were removed by reverse osmosis and air evaporation systems. Finally, ion exchange technology in combination with photolysis or photocatalysis was used for polishing of the effluent water stream. The wastewater stream consisted of urine and urine flush water, hygiene wastewater and a simulated humidity condensate.
