A short study on pharmaceuticals and their effects on membrane bioreactors.
Because of their toxicity to aquatic life and pseudo-persistent nature in the environment, pharmaceuticals have emerged as emergent pollutants of concern. One such device is the membrane bioreactor (MBR), which has the potential to operate as a barrier against medication discharge into the environment. Fouling refers to the deposit of mixed liquid elements on the membrane surface, which limits MBRs' global application. Aggressive chemicals and more energy costs are necessary to remove the foulant layer. The most common foulants are extracellular polymeric substances (EPS) and soluble microbial products (SMP). The goal of this study is to provide an overview of the research on bioprocesses for pharmaceutical scientific treatment that has been reported.Author(s): Akram Sarkar*
