This project investigates the impact of hazardous events (i.e. high organic, high salinity, high toxic shock loads in influent, aeration lost or membrane damage) on decentralised membrane bioreactor performance. This investigation is important for validation of membrane bioreactors to fully comply with the requirements of current Australian water recycling guidelines and to provide necessary risk-based information for health and environmental regulators.
