Abstract

Solids separation is an important and often used process in Environmental engineering, membranes are a technology that works based on the solids separation. Membranes are useful in because of the excellent effluent quality, and the high concentrated biomass that would lead to a small footprint. One of the issues that faces membrane bioreactors is the biofouling of the membrane pores, Biofouling is the clogging that occurs to membranes due to various microbes.

The purpose of this research is to create a mathematical model that describes the biofouling of the submerged aerobic membranes.
