Optimization of operational parameters in moving bed biofilm reactor with low cost polystyrene biocarrier by the response surface method
The combined effects of three independent variables (carrier filling ratio, aeration rate and reactor run time (RRT)) were evaluated in a continuous moving bed biofilm reactor (MBBR) through central composite design (CCD) of the response surface methodology (RSM) for experimental design, analysis and process optimization for municipal wastewater treatment processes. A low-cost polystyrene ...
Performance evaluation of a shaft–type hybrid bioreactor for the removal of carbonaceous organic matter
In comparison to an activated sludge process, the organics removal performance of a lab–scale hybrid bioreactor of volume 14.5 L was studied using waste automobile tyre–tube beads as bio–carrier. ...

Coupling Bio-Film Reactors
Coupling bio-film reactors with membrane filtration as bio-film membrane bioreactors (BF-MBR) is an interesting alternative technology to activated sludge membrane bioreactors (AS-MBR). Bio-film technology for wastewater treatment can provide a substantially lower suspended solids environment for membrane filtration compared to activated sludge processes. Potential benefits are; less membrane ...
