The understanding of the effects of combining solids reduction processes with membrane bioreactors is not yet fully developed; this is true in particular for full scale applications. As the characteristics of a biological sludge within a biological process are fundamental to the performance of Membrane Bio-Reactor (MBR) systems changes caused by the combination of different process must be considered carefully. The City of Healdsburg, CA, Water Reclamation Facility (WRF) has operated an MBR plant coupled with a Cannibal® solids reduction process for over 2 yrs. The effects of the solids reduction process on the biological characteristics and the performance of the membranes is examined, along with the benefits for combining these processes.
