Abstract

The feasibility of a high-loaded membrane bioreactor to improve methane recovery from sewage was investigated. Although the process needs further optimization, it already is feasible to recover at least 35% of the sewage COD. Important aspects for further research are the occurrence of membrane fouling, and the optimum process conditions for bioflocculation, i.e. the proper SRT/HRT ratio, dissolved oxygen concentration and shear and overall energy production and consumption under optimised conditions.
