Theory, Modeling, Design, Management and Applications to Wastewater Reuse

OverviewExpand or collapse me

In recent years the MBR market has experienced unprecedented growth. The best practice in the field is constantly changing and unique quality requirements and management issues are regularly emerging.

Membrane Biological Reactors: Theory, Modeling, Design, Management and Applications to Wastewater Reuse comprehensively covers the salient features and emerging issues associated with the MBR technology. The book provides thorough coverage starting from biological aspects and fundamentals of membranes, via modeling and design concepts, to practitioners’ perspective and good application examples.

Membrane Biological Reactors focuses on all the relevant emerging issues raised by including the latest research from renowned experts in the field. It is a valuable reference to the academic and professional community and suitable for undergraduate and postgraduate teaching in Environmental Engineering, Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology.

“This new book on membrane bioreactors (MBRs) aims to provide basic information for teaching, practical material for practitioners and sufficient depth for researchers. It successfully achieves these aims. The book provides a very comprehensive coverage of MBRs with 13 chapters authored by specialists in various aspects of the technology. This book is indeed a magnum opus – very comprehensive and a great source of information. Each chapter has an extensive reference list. Another valuable feature is that each chapter has a final ‘Future Outlook’ that speculates on the future trends and developments relevant to that chapter. This book is a major effort by a large team of MBR experts; many names will be familiar to those working in the field. I recommend it to any one or any organization interested in the remarkable technology we call ‘the MBR’." 

- Professor Tony Fane, Director-Mentor, Singapore Membrane Technology Centre, Nanyang Technological University.

“A new book on membrane bioreactor technology edited by Faisal I. Hai, Kazuo Yamamoto and Chung-Hak Lee provides an excellent compilation of the state of knowledge on this very comprehensively investigated field of water technology. The book has a very good mix of fundamentals on membranes and biological wastewater treatment processes as well as coverage of emerging fields of MBR research and application. Throughout the book there is a particular view on MBR technology as component of water reuse schemes. In summary, the book provides a wealth of information on most major aspects of MBR technology."

- Prof Thomas Wintgens, University of Applied Sciences and Arts, Northwestern, Switzerland.
