Abstract

The use of treated wastewater in addition to solving the problem of water shortage, can increase soil fertility and reduce the use of chemical fertilizers. We aim to provide a high-quality effluent to feed membrane system, reduce treatment costs and enhance the efficiency of wastewater recycling. All experiments were conducted on a novel integrated membrane biological aerated filter (IMBAF) consisting of a down flow cylindrical biological aerated filter (BAF) filled by silica and a novel sand-coated polystyrene granules (SCP), followed by ultrafiltration (UF) and reverse osmosis (RO) membranes. IMBAF reactor, with 73.6 L volume, was operated for 270 days (in three 90-day stages) with different conditions of returning backwash water. Accordingly, BAF generated high quality water for feeding UF membrane with 94.2, 68, 54.4, 91.2, and 99.95 of turbidity, 5-day biochemical oxygen demand (BOD5), chemical oxygen demand (COD), oil and grease (O & G), fecal coliform (FC) removal, respectively. At the end of stage 3, 99.88 of influent was recycled by UF and only 0.12 was disposed of as sludge. The BAF and UF module efficiently promote the quality of water entering RO system. After 75 days of continuous operation, the increase in trans-membrane pressure (TMP) and also decrease in RO membrane permeability were about 14 and 9.4, respectively, indicating low clogging of the membrane. The use of BAF structure designed in this study increases the wastewater recycling rate, decreases membrane clogging and thereby reduces the costs of concentrate disposal and chemical cleaning.
