HYDROGENOTROPHIC MICROBIAL REDUCTION OF OXYANIONS WITH THE MEMBRANE BIOFILM REACTOR
Zhou, C., A. Ontiveros-Valencia, R. Nerenberg, Y. Tang, D. Friese, R. Krajmalnik-Brown, et al.
Frontiers in Microbiology 9:3268(2019)

Membrane biofilm reactor (MBfR) technology for the remediation of oxyanions, such as nitrate, perchlorate, selenate, and chromate is presented in this paper. MBfR development at bench, pilot, and commercial scales, and the mechanisms that control MBfR performance, particularly including methods for managing the biofilm's structure and function, are discussed. Examples of MBfR performance for cases of treating single and co-occurring oxyanions in different types of contaminated water are also provided. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6335333/pdf/fmicb-09-03268.pdf
