  • Treatment of slaughterhouse plant wastewater by using a membrane bioreactor

    The use of a membrane bioreactor (MBR) for removal of organic substances and nutrients from slaughterhouse plant wastewater was investigated. The chemical oxygen demand (COD), total nitrogen (TN), and total phosphorus (TP) concentrations of slaughterhouse wastewater were found to be approximately 571 mg O2/L, 102.5 mg/L, and 16.25 mg PO4-P/L, respectively. A submerged type membrane was used in ...

  • Evaluation of passive reduction of nitrate from greenhouse effluent by planted bioreactors

    A number of pilot-scale gravel and wood-chip hybrid bioreactors planted with select species, together with unplanted units, were evaluated for their nutrient removal capabilities from the typical greenhouse effluent with high levels of nitrate and salts. Two levels of nutrient solution (high and low loading: HL/LL) were prepared to simulate the typical characteristics of the greenhouse ...

  • Pretreatment Requirements for Membrane Bioreactors

    Adequate pretreatment including fine screening is essential to the stable, long-term operation of membrane bioreactors (MBR) used to treat municipal wastewater. The amount of screenings generated by a screen with 1-2 mm size openings ranges between 10-25 dry mg/L. The cost of fine screening represents less than 3% of the total investment cost for a MBR-based wastewater treatment facility. Case ...

  • Membrane Bioreactors for RO Pretreatment

    ABSTRACTCurrently, treated municipal wastewater is typically discharged to the environment in most parts of the world. It is, however, a potential water resource from which high quality water for reuse can be produced. Reuse applications include both non-potable applications such as irrigation and production of industrial process water, and indirect potable reuse including aquifer recharge. For ...

  • Removal of pharmaceuticals and personal care products in a membrane bioreactor wastewater treatment plant

    Ninety-nine pharmaceuticals and personal care products (PPCPs) were analyzed in influent, final effluent, and biosolids samples from a wastewater treatment plant employing a membrane bioreactor (MBR). High concentrations in influent were found for acetaminophen, caffeine, metformin, 2-hydroxy-ibuprofen, paraxanthine, ibuprofen, and naproxen (104–105 ng/L). Final effluents ...

  • Membrane Bioreactor for Automobile Manufacturer

    Dynatec provided a system to treat wastewater from Ford's automotive assembly plant. The Problem The existing batch chemical treatment system for oil and metals removal was unable to meet the new standards for discharge to local POTW. The new requirements called for lower BOD and total Nitrogen and there was no way to make the existing system able to meet the standards. ...

  • The cost of a small membrane bioreactor

    The individual cost contributions to the mechanical components of a small membrane bioreactor (MBR) (100–2,500 m3/d flow capacity) are itemised and collated to generate overall capital and operating costs (CAPEX and OPEX) as a function of size. The outcomes are compared to those from previously published detailed cost studies provided for both very small containerised plants (<40 ...

  • Airlift bioreactors: Application to wastewater treatment

    After an introductory review, this paper presents a three-phase reactor fluid dynamic model that is used in the development of a generic process for upgrading existing wastewater treatment plants (WWT). The aim is to incorporate nitrification and de-nitrification without additional reactor volume. The core of the process consists of an attached growth airlift reactor (AGAR) in which a biomass ...

  • MBR bioreactor installation courtaulds, china

    Introduction Following a successful on-site trial using a mobile Bioreactor, Microbac has installed a full-scale Microbac Bioreactor unit in a Courtaulds textile plant in China to reduce the Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD) and Biochemical Oxygen Demand (BOD) of the wastewater. Information obtained from the site trial enabled accurate sizing of the full-scale Bioreactor unit to be ...

  • Membrane Bioreactors – Enviroquip MBR Systems (Retrofit)

    The Leoni Township’s wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) serves thirteen communities across three counties including the Michigan Speedway complex. A moratorium on growth was put in place until capacity and treatment issues with an aging aerated lagoon system could be addressed. In June of this year, construction of a new membrane bioreactor (MBR) ...

  • Influence of shear on nitrification rates in a membrane bioreactor

    Grundfos BioBooster (GBB) installed and operated a membrane bioreactor (MBR) test plant in 2012. During the period it became evident that the nitrification rate was lower than expected and a study was carried out to investigate the possible reasons for the observed low-nitrification rate. Tests were conducted at a pilot plant and the effect of shear from the BioBooster membrane system and the ...

  • Mining of compost from dumpsites and bioreactor landfills

    Landfill mining is the process to recover recyclable materials, landfill space and compost. The paper presents the concepts of mining of compost from open stabilised dumpsites and bioreactor landfills to make landfills sustainable. Studies indicate that 50% of the material from the dumpsite could be recovered and reused as compost for non-edible plants or cover material for daily use in the ...
