Article
The influence of operative variables in the performance of an ultrafiltration membrane in a hybrid moving bed membrane bioreactor treating real urban wastewater was studied in relation to the fouling rate and the recovery of permeability with a multivariable statistical analysis. Twenty-one cycles of operation were studied in relation to the fillin...
Article
Bacteria are key players in biological wastewater treatments (WWTs), thus a firm knowledge of the bacterial population dynamics is crucial to understand environmental/operational factors affecting the efficiency and stability of the biological depuration process. Unfortunately, little is known about the microbial ecology of the advanced biological...
Article
Seven cycles of operation in relation to the filling ratio, mixed liquor suspended solids (MLSS), hydraulic retention time (HRT), and temperature were studied in a pilot-scale experimental plant of a hybrid moving bed biofilm reactor-membrane bioreactor (MBBR-MBR). The aim of the present research was to study the influence of the operative variable...
Article
Moving bed membrane bioreactors (MBMBR) are advanced biological wastewater treatments combining suspended biomass (SB) and attached biofilms (AB). To evaluate the specific contribution of each biomass fraction to N removal, the abundances of gene markers of nitrifying and denitrifying bacteria were measured by quantitative PCR in a pilot-scale MBMB...
Article
Performance of a bench-scale wastewater treatment plant, which consisted of a membrane bioreactor, was monitored daily using pure oxygen and air to supply aerobic conditions with the aim of studying the increases of the aeration and sludge removal efficiencies and the effect of the temperature. The results showed the capacity of membrane bioreactor...
Article
The microbial hydrolytic enzymatic activities (acid phosphatase, alkaline phosphatase and glucosidase) in a moving bed membrane bioreactor (MBMBR system) for real urban wastewater treatment were investigated. This study was conducted in both suspended biomass and attached biofilm present in a MBMBR system. For this, four experimental phases with 20...

Full-text available
Wastewater treatment using moving bed membrane bioreactor technology was tested with real urban wastewater at a pilot plant, combining moving bed treatment as a biological process with hybrid biomass (suspended and fixed) and the advantages of a membrane separation system. The evolution of the kinetic constants of the hybrid biomass and organic mat...
Article
Full-text available
A comparative analysis was performed in a pilot-scale membrane bioreactor (MBR) treating urban wastewater supplied with either pure oxygen (O2) or air, to assess the influence of each aeration source on the diversity and activity of the bacterial communities in the sludge. The MBR was operated in three experimental stages with different concentrati...
Article
"La Caldera" is a high mountain lake located in Sierra Nevada, Spain. For its position and characteristics it is considered as an important "sensor" for global changes. Water samples were collected during the ice-free season in order to observe changes in the bacterial community structure. Experiments were carried out complementing culture and cult...
Article
A MBR (membrane bioreactor) was performed to quantify the improvement in nitrogen removal terms when pure oxygen and air were used to supply the aerobic conditions at different HRT (hydraulic retention time) and mixed liquid suspended solids concentrations. The improvement in the efficiency was 8.0% and 13.5% when pure oxygen was used with 12h and...

Delftia tsuruhatensis BM90, previously isolated from Tyrrhenian Sea and selected for its ability to degrade a wide array of phenolic compounds, was immobilized in chemically modified macro porous cellulose. The development of bacterial adhesion on the selected carrier was monitored by scanning electron microscopy. Evident colonization started alrea...
Article
The performance of a wastewater bench-scale membrane bioreactor (MBR) treatment plant using pure oxygen conditions was monitored daily to provide aerobic conditions. The results showed the capacity of the MBR system to remove organic material over at hydraulic retention time (HRT) of 12h and 18h. The alpha-factors of aeration were determined at thr...
Article
A pilot-scale membrane bioreactor was used to treat urban wastewater using pure oxygen instead of air as a source of aeration, to study its influence on bacterial diversity and levels of enzyme activities (acid and alkaline phosphatases, glucosidase, protease, and esterase) in the sludge. The experimental work was developed in two stages influenced...
Article
The performance of a wastewater bench-scale ultrafiltration membrane bioreactor (MBR) treatment plant using pure oxygen to supply the aerobic conditions for 95 days was studied. The results showed the capacity of the MBR systems to remove organic material under a hydraulic retention time of 12h and a sludge retention time of 39.91 days. Aeration re...
