Emerging Nutrient Removal
Membrane Aerated Biofilm Reactors: Full-Scale Implementation and Illustrative Pilots
Membrane Aerated Biofilm Reactor (MABR) is an innovative technology that facilitates process intensification by increasing capacity of infrastructure for nutrients removal and minimizing aeration energy. Use of gas-permeable membrane to develop nitrifiers-rich counter-diffusional biofilm is a key differentiator of MABR. This paper presents lessons learned from full-scale and pilot-scale plants.
