Our search has the following Google-type functionality:
+ (addition symbol)
If you use '+' at the start of a word, that word will be present in the search results.
eg. Harry +Potter
Search results will contain 'Potter'.
- (minus symbol)
If you use '-' at the start of a word, that word will be absent in the search results.
eg. Harry -Potter
Search results will not contain 'Potter'.
If you use 'AND' between 2 words, then both those words will be present in the search results.
eg. Harry AND Potter
Search results will contain both 'Harry' and 'Potter'.
If you use 'OR' between 2 words, then either or both of those words will be present in the search results.
eg. 'Harry OR Potter'
Search results will contain just 'Harry', or just 'Potter', or both 'Harry' and 'Potter'.
If you use 'NOT' before a word, that word will be absent in the search results. (This is the same as using the minus symbol).
eg. 'Harry NOT Potter'
Search results will not contain 'Potter'.
" " (double quotation marks)
If you use double quotation marks around words, those words will be present in that order.
eg. "Harry Potter"
Search results will contain 'Harry Potter', but not 'Potter Harry'.
If you use '*' in a word, it performs a wildcard search, as it signifies any number of characters. (Searches cannot start with a wildcard).
Search results will contain words starting with 'Pot' and ending in 'er', such as 'Potter'.

A Membrane BioReactor (MBR) is the combination of a membrane process (e.g. microfiltration/ ultrafiltration) with a suspended growth bioreactor. When used with domestic wastewater, MBR processes can produce effluent of high enough quality to be discharged to waterways, or to be reclaimed for urban irrigation. Other advantages of MBRs over conventional processes include small footprint, easy retrofit and upgrade of old wastewater treatment plants. The MBR Book covers all important aspects of Membrane BioReactors in water and waste water treatment, from the fundamentals of the processes via design principles to MBR technologies. Industrial case studies help interpret actual results and give pointers for best practice. Useful appendices provide data on commercial membranes and international membrane organizations. The MBR book enables readers to: * Understand the fundamental processes involved in membrane and biotreatment technologies * Compare and contrast design options and work through sample calculations * Review commercial MBR systems in terms of specific applications * Learn from case studies involving domestic and industrial effluent treatment and recycling * Analyze process design, operation, performance and maintenance to draw conclusions appropriate to their requirements New to the second edition: 40% more content than the first edition. * Over 120 contributors from the municipal/industrial practitioner and academic research communities. * State-of-the-art in national/international drivers and barriers, available commercial technologies, research and development, and practitioner knowledge * Review of MBR status in ten countries * Expanded sections on anaerobic MBRs, micropollutant fate and hybrid systems * Simplified design methodology, biokinetics for dynamic modelling, and cost benefit analysis * New operation and maintenance section, informed by an expert panel of practitioners offering more than 50 years combined experience * Over 40 MBR membrane products described * Over 50 case studies provided, including key design, performance, and operation and maintenance data in almost all cases
