Membrane bioreactors improve the production of cellulosic ethanol [Registered]

Membrane bioreactors (MBRs) are widely used in wastewater treatment plants because they intensify the biotreatment process, reduce the number of processing stages, retain the biocatalyst and help remove the product from the suspended solids. In order to take advantage of these benefits, as well as to enable continuous production, membrane modules have been developed and tested for lignocellulosic-ethanol production by researchers at the Dept. of Resource Recovery, University of Borås, with cooperation and support from the Flemish Institute for Technological Research (VITO).…
