Water and wastewater treatment explored in‘The MBR Book’

Posted: Thursday 25th November 2010

Leading international specialist in Membrane BioReactor (MBR) research, Professor Simon Judd of Cranfield University, is to launch the second edition of the internationally respected ‘The MBR Book: Principles and Applications of Membrane Bioreactors for Water and Wastewater Treatment.’

With tightening legislation and growing environmental concerns, MBRs are becoming the technology of choice in water and wastewater treatment. More and more sites are adopting MBR technology, primarily for the purer water quality it can produce and the small space the technology occupies.

A Membrane BioReactor (MBR) is the combination of a membrane process such as microfiltration or ultra filtration with a suspended growth bioreactor. When used with domestic wastewater, MBR processes can produce sewage of high enough quality to be discharged to waterways, or to be reclaimed for irrigation or industrial use.

The MBR Book covers all important aspects of Membrane BioReactors in water and wastewater treatment, from the fundamentals of the processes via design principles to MBR technologies. This second edition includes 45% more content than its predecessor, which was released in 2006 and has since sold out. Over 160 experts from the academic research and municipal/industrial practitioner communities – including a number of staff, students and alumni from Cranfield University - have contributed to the book, which also reviews MBR status in 13 countries.

Professor Simon Judd has been conducting research into MBR technologies at Cranfield University for almost 20 years, managing a range of UK and EU projects in membranes for portable and industrial water treatment, as well as in water recycling. As well as publishing extensively in the research literature, Simon has co-authored three textbooks in membrane and MBR technology.
