The article reports that Marlborough, Massachusetts-based Ken's Foods Inc. has upgraded one of its three wastewater treatment facilities to improve processing its high-organic content effluents. An anaerobic style of membrane bioreactor (MBR) treatment process was integrated and the company's previously installed low-rate anaerobic reactor was retained. The existing anaerobic system was converted to an AnMBR to expand the treatment capabilities of the anaerobic portion of the treatment process.

    The resistance-in-series (RIS) model has been used frequently to analyze membrane fouling phenomenon encountered in membrane bioreactors (MBRs) applied to wastewater treatment. Although it is easy to apply, there is a need to be cautious in the use of the RIS model, particularly when it is used...
