In this study, a membrane biofilm reactor was investigated for aerobic methane oxidation coupled indirectly to denitrification, a process potentially useful for denitrification of nitrate-contaminated waters and wastewaters using methane as external electron donor. Methane and oxygen were supplied from the interior of a silicone tube to a biofilm growing on its surface. We found that the membrane biofilm reactor was to some extent self-regulating in the supply of methane and oxygen. Although… CONTINUE READING
