Anaerobic membrane bioreactor as a decentralized municipal wastewater treatment technology

Anaerobic membrane bioreactor as a decentralized municipal wastewater treatment technology

Internship Description

This project looks into scaling up anaerobic membrane bioreactors to treat municipal wastewaters. A pilot-scale anaerobic membrane bioreactor will be constructed and operated to treat municipal wastewater. Reactor performance will be evaluated along with the effluent quality. 

Deliverables/Expectations

The deliverables are to come up with a process reactor design for the scaled-up anaerobic membrane bioreactor; a lab-scale anaerobic membrane bioreactor will be operated to treat municipal wastewater; reactor performance will be assessed; effluent quality will be measured; effluent will be used to irrigate agricultural crops; crop yield and health will also be evaluated in collaboration with Professor Ikram Blilou’s group.
