A novel vertical submerged membrane bioreactor (VSMBR) composed of anoxic and oxic zones in one reactor was developed in an attempt to reduce the problems concerning effective removal of pollutants from synthetic wastewater including glucose as a sole carbon source as well as membrane fouling. The optimal volume ratio of anoxic zone/oxic zone was found as 0.6. The desirable internal recycle rate and hydraulic retention time (HRT) for effective nutrient removal were 400% and 8h, respectively… CONTINUE READING
