Lebrero R, Muñoz R, Kumar A, Van Lagenhove H. Membrane Bioreactors for Waste gas Treatment. In: Air Pollution Prevention and Control - Bioreactors and Bioenergy. Edited by: C. Kennes & M.C Veiga. Wiley-Blackwell, 2013, pp.155-184
In the chapter on “Membrane Bioreactors for Waste Gas Treatment” an overview of recent progress in this field is given. In contrast with waste water treatment, membrane systems for waste gas treatment are still in the exploratory stage, although advantages are obvious: in membrane systems the air and aqueous phase are separated, which allows better performance for hydrophobic compounds. The bottleneck, however, is the scaling up of the system. In this chapter the basics of membrane permeation; reactor configuration; results of lab and pilot scale membrane waste gas treatment studies; microbiological aspects and modeling are discussed and future perspectives are presented.
