A framework for good biofilm reactor modeling practice (GBRMP)
A researcher or practitioner can employ a biofilm model to gain insight into what controls the performance of a biofilm process and for optimizing its performance. While a wide range of biofilm-modeling platforms is available, a good strategy is to choose the simplest model that includes sufficient components and processes to address the modeling goal. In most cases, a one-dimensional biofilm model provides the best balance, and good choices can range from hand-calculation analytical solutions, simple spreadsheets,...

Microbial characteristics of landfill leachate disposed by aerobic moving bed biofilm reactor
An aerobic moving bed biofilm reactor (MBBR) was applied to treat landfill leachate generated from a domestic waste incineration plant. Pollutant removal efficiency of this reactor under stable operating condition was studied. The biomass, bacteria species, and microbial metabolism in this reactor were investigated. These results showed that the average removal efficiency of chemical oxygen demand (COD) and ammonia nitrogen in the aerobic MBBR achieved 64% and 97% in the optimum conditions, respectively. The...
Application of a moving-bed biofilm reactor for sulfur-oxidizing autotrophic denitrification
Sulfur-oxidizing autotrophic denitrification (SO-AD) was investigated in a laboratory-scale moving-bed biofilm reactor (MBBR) at a sewage temperature of 22 °C. A synthetic wastewater with nitrate, sulfide and thiosulfate was fed into the MBBR. After 20 days' acclimation, the reduced sulfur compounds were completely oxidized and nitrogen removal efficiency achieved up to 82%. The operation proceeded to examine the denitrification by decreasing hydraulic retention time (HRT) from 12 to 4 h in stages. At steady...
Effect of salinity variation on the autotrophic kinetics of the start-up of a membrane bioreactor ...
A membrane bioreactor (MBR) and a hybrid moving bed biofilm reactor-membrane bioreactor (hybrid MBBR-MBR) for municipal wastewater treatment were studied to determine the effect of salinity on nitrogen removal and autotrophic kinetics. The biological systems were analyzed during the start-up phase with a hydraulic retention time (HRT) of 6 h, total biomass concentration of 2,500 mg L−1 in the steady state, and electric conductivities of 1.05 mS cm−1 for MBR and hybrid MBBR-MBR working under regular salinity and...
