Anaerobic digestion (AD) is a biochemical process in which organic matter is converted into biogas in a series of biochemical reactions. The development of high-rate anaerobic reactors (HRAR) led to the breakthrough of full-scale applications of AD for the treatment of industrial wastewater. HRARs, such as the upflow anaerobic sludge blanket ...

Driven by the increasing demand for waste reduction and green energy production, an integrated system which combines an anaerobic membrane bioreactor (AnMBR) and a solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) was proposed in this research project for blackwater treatment and energy production. The potentials of using an AnMBR for wastewater treatment and biogas...

Aromatic compounds have always been of concern regarding their toxicity to living organisms, including microorganisms. With more anthropogenic activities (e.g. coal gasification), the need for feasible treatment of industrial effluents is highly prioritised. With the anaerobic degradation process being a competitive solution, these compounds’...

Bitumen fume condensate (BFC) is a hazardous wastewater generated at asphalt reclamation and production sites. BFC contains a wide variety of potentially toxic organic pollutants that negatively affect anaerobic processes. In this study, we chemically characterized BFC produced at an industrial site and evaluated its degradation under...

This study investigates the effects, conversions, and resistance induction, following the addition of 150 μg·L<sup>−1 </sup>of two antibiotics, sulfamethoxazole (SMX) and trimethoprim (TMP), in a laboratory-scale micro-aerated anaerobic membrane bioreactor (MA-AnMBR). TMP and SMX were removed at 97 and 86%, indicating that micro-aeration did not...

Palm oil is a popular ingredient in domestic products. The palm oil industry has been growing rapidly over the past decades, so that the amount of palm oil mill effluent (POME) generated from the palm oil production has been increasing as well. The anaerobic membrane bioreactor (AnMBR) is a treatment solution that can remove organic pollutants...

Anaerobic membrane bioreactor (AnMBR) technology is increasingly researched for wastewater treatment in a circular economy scenario to recover nutrients, water, and biogas. AnMBR couples the advantages of anaerobic digestion, such as low sludge production, no aeration requirement and biogas production, with the benefits of membrane technology,...

Industrial wastewaters generated in chemical industries are often characterized by extreme conditions, such as the presence of complex, recalcitrant, and toxic aromatic compounds, high temperature, and high salinity. The mentioned conditions predominantly occur when chemical industries reduce process water use or strive for closing water loops....

Phenol conversion under saline thermophilic anaerobic conditions requires the development and sustenance of a highly specialized microbial community. In the present research, an anaerobic membrane bioreactor (AnMBR) fed with an influent containing 0.5 g·L<sup>−1</sup> phenol and 6.5 gNa<sup>+</sup>·L<sup>−1</sup> was operated at 55 °C for 300...

Treating petrochemical wastewater is a challenge for conventional anaerobic reactors. One example is coal gasification wastewater that, besides its salinity, is rich in toxic and inhibitory aromatics, such as phenol, cresols, and resorcinol. Studies have shown that phenol and p-cresol share the same degradation intermediates, whereas...

Flux enhancers (FEs) have been successfully applied for fouling mitigation in membrane bioreactors. However, more research is needed to compare and optimise different dosing strategies to improve the filtration performance, while minimising the use of FEs and preventing overdosing. Therefore, the goal of this research is to develop an...

Palm Oil Mill Effluent (POME) is an attractive medium for biogas production in an anaerobic membrane bioreactor (AnMBR) because of its high lipid content. Long-chain fatty acid (LCFA) accumulation is toxic and considered harmful for the biological performance within the reactor as they can be absorbed by biomass particles causing sludge...

With increasing pressure on natural water resources, wastewater is gradually being considered as a potential source for potable water. Current WWTPs are designed for the removal of parameters like solids, nutrients, organic matter, and pathogens. For achieving a high-quality effluent, that enables reuse, it is important to also address the...

High salinity is becoming more common in industrial process water and final effluents, particularly when striving to close water loops. There is limited knowledge on the anaerobic treatment of chemical wastewaters characterized by distinct salinity fluctuations. This study investigates the high and fluctuating salinity effects on the...

Fouling is a major challenge for the economic feasibility and applicability of membrane bioreactors. Several strategies have been proposed for fouling control, and among them, addition of flux enhancers (FE) have shown promising results. Previous research revealed a high variability of the required optimal dosage of FE for different types of...

The scarcity of water is a major global concern in the modern times. Hence, the judicial use of water must be coupled with water reuse to counteract the water depletion. To reuse water, we eye on available treatment technologies which can guide us to circular use and reuse of water and nutrients. Anaerobic digestion, is known for producing...

Closing water loops in chemical industries result in hot and highly saline residual streams, often characterized by high strength and the presence of refractory or toxic compounds. These streams are attractive for anaerobic technologies, provided the chemical compounds are biodegradable. However, under such harsh conditions, effective biomass...

Cationic polymers have proven to be suitable flux enhancers (FEs) in large‐scale aerobic membrane bioreactors (MBRs), whereas in anaerobic membrane bioreactors (AnMBRs) research is scarce, and so far, only done at lab‐scale. Results from MBRs cannot be directly translated to AnMBRs because the extent and nature of membrane fouling under...
