Mitigating tertiary membrane fouling under cold weather conditions

2017/18-2019/20 • $79,332
Membrane technologies are increasingly being employed to produce high quality treated wastewaters for discharge to sensitive waterbodies or for reuse purposes. Membrane fouling is one of the most challenging factors that reduces membrane capacity and increases operating expenses. In particular,...

An evaluation of membrane aerated biofilm reactor technology in anabling shortcut nitrogen removal

2017/18-2018/19 • $127,967
Carbon, nitrogen and phosphorus are the primary stressors that pollute lakes, drinking water wells, streams and wetlands. Most stressors come from human activities and through municipal and home sewage systems. Thus, wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) are required to remove carbon and nutrients...

Developing biofilm-based microalgal bioreactors for the efficient production of fuels, chemicals and clean water

2014/15-2017/18 • $472,000
Using microalgae to convert carbon to biomass is one of the most promising technologies for developing renewable fuels. Algae produces more biomass than conventional crops such as corn and sugar beet, can be used to capture carbon and can be used in water treatment processes. Despite these...

NSERC Senior Industrial Research Chair in Advancing Treatment and Reducing Risk

2012/13-2016/17 • $1,387,461
The NSERC Chair in Water Treatment at the University of Waterloo functions as a centre of expertise in watertreatment and quality. The Chair's mission is to conduct leading edge, fundamentally based, yet practically oriented research on critical issues related to water treatment and quality. Our...

This NSERC Industrial Research Chair in Source Water Quality and Advanced Drinking Water Treatment isheld by Robert C. Andrews (Senior Chairholder) and Ron Hofmann (Associate Chairholder) of the Departmentof Civil Engineering, University of Toronto. The research focuses on two important areas:...

Understanding and optimization of the plug-flow enzymatic hydrolysis process for sludge anaerobic digestion performance enhancement

2015/16-2016/17 • $80,000
The recent paradigm shift to consider municipal wastewater as the valuable energy and nutrient sources has largely stimulated research interests in the anaerobic digestion: a key technology to recover clean energy from sludge generated in biological wastewater treatment . Foreseeing the critical...

Innovative municipal wastewater treatment with resource recovery

2011/12-2014/15 • $581,032
For the past thirty years, researchers at UBC have been working to develop new technologies and strategies for wastewater treatment. This effort has resulted in several breakthroughs in such areas as phosphorus removal and recovery, membrane bioreactors and sludge conditioning. In the next phase...

Optimization of fouling control in submerged hollow fiber membrane systems

2011/12-2012/13 • $80,936
Ultrafiltration membranes are increasingly being used for water and wastewater treatment applications because of their ability to effectively remove many contaminants of interest. However, the retained contaminants can accumulate and foul a membrane surface, increasing the resistance to the...

Development of hollow fiber anaerobic membrane bioreactors for industrial wastewater treatment

2011/12-2012/13 • $51,500
The objective of this project is to develop hollow fiber submerged anaerobic membrane bioreactors (HFSAnMBRs) technology for wastewater purification and demonstrate that HFSAnMBR technology is capable of achieving energy recovery and system closure for industrial wastewater treatment. This study...

Energy recovery from food industry wastewater using microbial electrochemical cells and anaerobic membrane bioreactor

2011/12-2012/13 • $18,460
We will develop innovative biotechnologies for treating high strength organic wastewater released from food industries, which will significantly reduce surcharge fees for over-strength wastewater effluent discharge and add supplemental economic benefits with cost-effective management and...

Ammonium nitrogen recovery from anaerobic membrane bioreactor permeates

2011/12 • $25,000
Anaerobic membrane bioreactor (AnMBRs) is a sustainable wastewater treatment technology because AnMBRs are able to treat organic waste and wastewater without oxygen supply, to produce high quality effluent and to recover methane energy. Hence, Successful application of AnMBRs into municipal...
