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 plants.The MBR Book covers all important aspects of Membrane BioReactors in water and waste water treatment, from the fundamentals of the processes via design principles to MBR technologies. Industrial case studies help interpret actual results and give pointers for best practice. Useful appendices provide data on commercial membranes and international membrane organizations.The MBR book enables readers to:Understand the fundamental processes involved in membrane and biotreatment technologies Compare and contrast design options and work through sample calculations Review commercial MBR systems in terms of specific applications Learn from case studies involving domestic and industrial effluent treatment and recycling Analyze process design, operation, performance and maintenance to draw conclusions appropriate to their requirementsNew to the second edition:Approx. 40% new and revised contentCoverage of operation and maintenance (not covered in 1 st ed.) Troubleshooting MBRs New case studies New material on long-term experience Latest legislation Coverage of disruptive hybrid technologies Additional coverage of costs/ carbon footprint issues Updated coverage of process technology and membrane selection Revised coverage of MBR design Membrane Bioreactors are a major growth area in the water and waste water treatment industries Internationally-known author, one of the leading senior experts in MBR research Principles and practice, backed by industrial case studies
