Opportunity in research efforts to develop profitable membrane technologies

Dublin, January 13, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – The report “Advances in membrane technologies for industrial wastewater treatment” has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com offer.

Wastewater from various industries such as pulp and paper, agriculture, food and beverage (F&B), personal care, healthcare, metals and mining, manufacturing, power generation , oil and gas and other industrial segments are classified as industrial wastewater.

The effluents from these industries vary in physical, chemical and biological characteristics and require different types of treatment. For example, pulp and paper and F&B effluents have a higher biological oxygen demand, agricultural effluents have a high nitrogen content, and effluents from manufacturing, mining and fossil fuel power plants. have a higher content of heavy metals.

Membrane technologies are gaining ground in industrial wastewater treatment due to their greater efficiency in treating chemical oxygen demand, biological oxygen demand, total suspended substances and organic compounds compared to treatment. conventional wastewater.

Membrane technologies require less space and are modular in their approach, making them viable options to consider for various operations. Industrial wastewater treatment applications generally focus on two types of membrane technologies – membrane bioreactor and membrane distillation. These membranes are packaged in 4 modules with reactors, which are plate and frame, tubular, spiral wound and hollow fiber, depending on the scale of operations and the amount of wastewater to be treated.

The adoption of membrane technologies in industrial wastewater occurs in the secondary and tertiary phases. Factors such as low pH, high flux, high content of suspended substances and nitrogen content can influence the risk of membrane fouling. Most of the commercial membrane bioreactor and membrane distillation solutions have complex structures and are not easy to clean, while in biofilm reactors the biofilm can be easily removed, but reinstallation requires additional work. These factors tend to increase the maintenance costs of membrane bioreactor and membrane distillation technologies.

The development and adoption of membrane technology is still in its infancy, particularly in Asia-Pacific, despite several research studies published in this area. Although the application of the membrane is energy and cost efficient, it involves high maintenance and capital costs, which slows down the rate of adoption. The interest of government agencies in promoting efficient industrial wastewater treatment may increase the potential for adoption of these technologies.
