No critic rating

Waiting for minimum critic reviews


The municipal water industry is a major user and developer of membrane technology, which helps it to process sewage and waste water, and to provide water free of pathogens, chemicals, odours and unwanted tastes.

Now that the membrane bioreactor technology (MBR) is maturing, a wealth of new data is available on MBR design, operation and maintenance.

Written by MBR specialist Professor Simon Judd, this second edition had been fully revised and expanded, now describing over 40 MBR technologies and referencing 55 case studies worldwide across a range of operating conditions.  As well as defining the science behind the technology, this book delivers valuable practical information and guidance which engineers will be able to use to analyze process design, operation and performance.

Membrane Bioreactors are a major growth area in the water and waste water treatment industriesInternationally-known author, one of the leading senior experts in MBR researchPrinciples and practice, backed by industrial case studies
