Project: Development of an integrated population balance/hydrodynamic model to optimize the water-sludge separation process in wastewater treatment
- project duration
- 01-OCT-05 – 30-SEP-08
- This study deals with membrane bioreactors (MBR), combining biological treatment with membrane separation technology. An integral model will be developed describing the MBR processes, i.e. biological processes, filtration processes and changes in particle size of the activated sludge. For the latter a mechanistic submodel will be developed describing the changes in particle size distribution by using population balance models.
