WERF PROJECT: FEASIBILITY OF MEMBRANE TECHNOLOGY FOR BIOLOGICAL WASTEWATER TREATMENT - IDENTIFICATION OF ISSUES AND MBR TECHNOLOGY ASSESSMENT TOOL
Abstract:Recent developments in the application of membrane technology to biological treatment (membrane bioreactors, MBRs) prompted the Water Environment Research Foundation (WERF) to commission a research project to compile existing information on MBR applications, develop a MBR screening and evaluation tool, and to address specific MBR application variables. This paper presents initial results from this research, including identification of the specific issues to be addressed and an overview of the MBR assessment tool. The issues identified have been grouped into five categories, as follows: (1) application classifications, (2) perceived benefits, (3) design considerations, (4) operational issues, and (5) equipment. The MBR assessment tool will be delivered in electronic format and will include a MBR “toolkit” consisting of: (1) electronic MBR instructional modules, (2) a published literature database, (3) a Grey literature database, (4) an installation database, (5) links to relevant sites on the world wide web, and (6) a preliminary process sizing tool.
