The article focuses on the study which examines the impact of membrane foul formation, a decrease in filterability caused by the interaction between the membrane and micro-particles in activated sludge-mixed liquid in a submerged membrane biological reactor (MBR). It cites several factors of membrane fouling, including the properties of mixed liquids and the conditions of membrane separation. It shows that foul formation was prevented by providing aeration and intermittent effluent discharge.
