Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The concept of sustainable development is a global trend that focuses on the development of solutions for a particular area of the national economy that will not only be the most effective in terms of their direct application, but will also reduce the impact on the environment, and their implementation will require minimal costs. From this point of view, wastewater treatment technologies fit perfectly into the ideology of sustainable development, since high-quality treatment contributes to the creation of a high-quality environment and reduces the negative impact on water bodies, soil, atmosphere, etc. At the same time, wastewater treatment technologies require high energy consumption, and the stricter the requirements for the quality of treatment, the higher the costs will be.

If we consider urban wastewater treatment facilities, the application of various technologies should be evaluated in terms of their implementation at new facilities or the upgrading of existing ones. In both cases, it is mandatory to ensure the required values of the maximum permissible discharge under various restrictions: technological, industrial, economic, etc. One of the relatively new, and therefore promising, methods of wastewater treatment is the application of membrane bioreactors for wastewater treatment of various origins.

This Special Issue aims to accumulate new knowledge obtained through the research, study and consideration of the principles and features of wastewater treatment in membrane bioreactors under various conditions and modes of operation. In addition, the issue of energy and the economic efficiency of this technology is of particular interest.

Microbial dehydrogenase activity can help to determine the oxidizing capacity of activated sludge. Here we propose an innovative and automated express-method based on rapid determination of dehydrogenase activity. The measurement is based on the rate of methylene blue reduction by living microbial cells in suspension. A single analysis takes 10 min. The method was adapted for biofilms immobilized on the floating carriers of industrial bioreactors and the kinetics of biological oxidation by activated sludge and biofilms was compared. New parameters were proposed to characterize the biological oxidation under low oxygen levels. The obtained make it possible to quickly determine the dehydrogenase activity of activated sludge and biofilms and promptly monitor the effectiveness of industrial biological wastewater treatment.
