Development of a Novel Membrane Bioreactor for Cost-effective and Environmentally Sustainable Wastewater Treatment and Microalgae Harvesting

Development of a Novel Membrane Bioreactor for Cost-effective and Environmentally Sustainable Wastewater Treatment and Microalgae Harvesting

The project aims to develop and evaluate a new membrane photobioreactor that represents a unique combination of forward osmosis membrane filtration and photobioreactor. The proposed membrane photobioreactor is able to simultaneously treat sewage whilst producing/harvesting microalgae biomass for biofuel production and capturing CO2 from the atmosphere.
