Abstract A laboratory scale membrane aeration bioreactor (MABR) with a void volume of 1.35 l was tested for its ability to treat synthetic wastewater. The MABR process couples aerobic biological wastewater treatment with the bubbleless mass transfer of pure oxygen through hollow fibre membranes. The biofilm that was formed on the surface of the hollow fibres utilised oxygen transferred from the fibre lumen for the degradation of organics transferred from the synthetic wastewater flowing over… CONTINUE READING
