Biocatalytic membrane reactors for the removal of recalcitrant and emerging pollutants from wastewater

Chapter


Abstract


  • The potential fields of application of biocatalytic membrane

    reactors have widened considerably in recent years. Although biocatalytic

    membrane reactors, in general, are yet to achieve broad industrial

    application, in the not too far future they are expected to play a major

    role, not only for the production, transformation and valorization of

    raw materials but also for environmental remediations. This chapter

    comprehensively reviews the laboratory scale studies which demonstrate

    the potential of biocatalytic membrane reactors in wastewater treatment

    applications. Studies reponed in the literature, however, serve as proof

    of concept only. Issues that need to be addressed in order to achieve

    scale-up of such systems have been discussed in this chapter.
