Anaerobic Membrane Bioreactors for Sustainable Wastewater Treatment

Sustainable water management is increasingly important for utilities and is driving efforts to reduce energy consumption and residuals production in domestic wastewater (DWW) treatment without compromising effluent quality. Anaerobic membrane bioreactors (AnMBRs) combine anaerobic biological treatment and membrane separation in a single process. The potential benefits of DWW treatment by AnMBRs are substantial: (1) they generate a fraction of ...

Handbook of Biological Wastewater Treatment: Second Edition

The scope of this comprehensive new edition of Handbook of Biological Wastewater Treatment ranges from the design of the activated sludge system, final settlers, auxiliary units (sludge thickeners and digesters) to pre-treatment units such as primary settlers and UASB reactors. The core of the book deals with the optimized design of biological and chemical nutrient removal. The book presents the state-of-the-art theory concerning the various ...

Industrial MBRs: Membrane Bioreactors for Industrial Wastewater Treatment

Industrial MBRs' is a concise guide to the design, operation and general implementation of membrane bioreactor (MBR) technology in the treatment of industrial effluents. Industrial sectors considered include food and beverage, petroleum, pharmaceutical, landfill, textile and ships. The book provides a brief summary of each of these sectors, along with the characteristics of the various biologically-treatable effluents generated. Key facets of ...

Mass Transfer Characteristics of Floating Media in MBBR and IFAS Fixed-Film Systems

The goals of this project were to establish a standard protocol for measuring mass transfer rates in biofilm media, and to use the resulting data to develop and calibrate an empirical model. Two laboratory-scale continuous flow reactors were loaded with MBBR media donated from two manufacturers, and fed a synthetic wastewater free of organic carbon, but rich in ammonia. The reactors were aerated using coarse-bubble aeration, and operated at two ...

MBR Book, 2nd Edition

A Membrane BioReactor (MBR) is the combination of a membrane process (e.g. microfiltration/ ultrafiltration) with a suspended growth bioreactor. When used with domestic wastewater, MBR processes can produce effluent of high enough quality to be discharged to waterways, or to be reclaimed for urban irrigation. Other advantages of MBRs over conventional processes include small footprint, easy retrofit and upgrade of old wastewater treatment ...

Membrane Biological Reactors

In recent years the MBR market has experienced unprecedented growth. The best practice in the field is constantly changing and unique quality requirements and management issues are regularly emerging. Membrane Biological Reactors: Theory, Modeling, Design, Management and Applications to Wastewater Reuse comprehensively covers the salient features and emerging issues associated with the MBR technology. The book provides thorough coverage starting ...

Membrane Bioreactor Design Guide for Achieving Low Effluent Nutrient Concentrations

 The overall aim of this research was to evaluate membrane bioreactor (MBR) process designs to meet low effluent nitrogen and/or phosphorus concentrations from municipal wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) and to identify design and operating issues that are unique to the application of MBR technology for achieving a high level of nutrient removal, such as effluent concentrations for total nitrogen (TN) below 3 to 6 mg/L and for total phosphorus ...

Principles of Membrane Bioreactors for Wastewater Treatment

Principles of Membrane Bioreactors for Wastewater Treatmentᅠdescribes the state-of-the-art of MBR technology, principles of MBR and design and operation of plants. Membrane bioreactor (MBR) technology is a wastewater treatment method combining biological pollutant treatment with physical membrane separation. It has gained increasing commercial significance over the last decade, with applications in municipal and industrial wastewater treatment. ...
