TLDR
An integrated approach is suggested which includes the analysis of the fouling situation, a selection of suitable components from the anti-fouling menu and an effective and representative monitoring of biofilm development.
Biofouling in Membrane Systems
Biofouling of Membrane Systems gives a comprehensive overview on the state of the art strategies to control biofouling in spiral wound reverse osmosis membrane systems and point to possible future
Advances in biofouling mitigation: A review
ABSTRACT The attachment of microbial biomass on solid surfaces is a universal phenomenon that occurs in natural and engineering systems and is responsible for various types of biofouling. Biological
Biofilm development on new and cleaned membrane surfaces.
TLDR
This thesis presents a comprehensive research report on microbiological aspects of biofouling occurrence in full-scale reverse osmosis (RO) systems, in particular in relation to operational aspects of RO systems, and concluded that cleaning strategies should focus more on the removal of accumulated biomass and not only on the killing of cells.
An overview on the reactors to study drinking water biofilms.
Biofouling characteristics and identification of preponderant bacteria at different nutrient levels in batch tests of a recirculating cooling water system
TLDR
The preponderant bacteria strains involved in biofouling under two culture conditions were identified by applying both physiological and biochemical tests and further molecular biology techniques with phylogenetic affiliation analysis.

TLDR
Sanders’ (1966) preliminary work and much more recent experimental studies using micro-electrodes have shown the presence of dissolved oxygen concentration gradients within biofilms.

TLDR
Application of process analysis to biofilm formation provides an integrated approach which incorporates microbial physiology, reaction engineering, and transport phenomena to understand, control, and exploit biofilm processes.
