ABOUT THE GROUP

Biofilm-Membrane hybrid systems

The Biofilm Engineering group investigate the basics of biofilm form and function and how biofilm physiology can be integrated with membrane processes to enable sustainable water treatment and reuse.

1. Membrane aerated bioreactors as process intensification solutions for wastewater reuse 

2. Biofilm development in low pressure filtration systems and dense membranes for wastewater reuse

3. Mechanisms of solute transport in dense membranes applied to desalination and wastewater reuse
