Fouling is inevitable in membrane bioreactors (MBRs) due to the complex nature of activated sludge, which contains a broad variety of potential foulants. Filter cakes that build up from sludge particles are traditionally highly compressible due to both the deformation of the individual sludge particles and the rearrangement of these particles in the cake. However, this phenomenon has been little examined in studies of fouling mechanisms in MBR systems. This study examines the properties of the… CONTINUE READING
