Microbial Technologies and MBR for Water Treatment

January 30, 2024

Microbial consortia are used in wastewater treatment for decades. Microbes reduce the volume of pollutants and contaminants and even odour of the wastewater. Selecting the bacteria for faster and more efficient processes is key in enhancing the process of wastewater treatment.

Recent years has seen more improvements in the microbial technologies such as combining the biological systems with membrane filtration techniques in MBR systems. Microbial treatments can minimize wear and tear on components, reduce energy costs as well as extend equipment lifespan.

This workshop aims to address how microbial communities can be used for efficient water treatment and its advantages, followed by how these microbial communities can be used in engineered systems such as MBR, Membrane Aerated Biofilm Reactor (MABR) and how engineered systems can be optimised for efficiency by managing the biofilm build-up.

This workshop will bring together academia and industry to discuss the latest developments in this topic. We hope this workshop will identify challenges and gaps in the current technologies and potential collaborations to improve the existing systems innovatively. It will give an opportunity for both SNBC and SGMEM to work together towards new innovations and academic-industry collaborations.
