Description

The use of membrane bioreactors (MBRs) has been increasing worldwide over the last two decades treating both municipal and industrial waste streams. Much of the development have been on aerobic MBRs (AeMBRs) using conventional designs and membrane materials. Implementation of fouling control strategies have mostly been limited to membrane relaxation, aeration, backwash and chemical cleaning. However, new developments in MBR technology, such as in aeration patterns, have been introduced. New membrane materials and MBR configurations have also been developed, thus increasing the effectiveness and performance of the AeMBR. Advanced Membrane Separation Processes for Sustainable Water and Wastewater Management – Aerobic Membrane Bioreactor Processes and Technologies consolidates up-to-date research developments in AeMBR systems for wastewater treatments in terms of membrane materials and decorations, reactor designs, fouling mechanisms. Developments in AeMBR research on energy efficiency and fouling control strategies as well as knowledge gaps and future research and application perspectives discussed. Novel materials and surface patterning to reduce membrane fouling in both water and wastewater membrane separation processes is also included.This book is a potential resource for membrane separation and AeMBR practitioners, engineers, scientists, educators and students, and public to understand the latest developments and future prospects in membrane technology.

Key Features
