Application of membrane bioreactor for tanning wastewater treatment

Tanning industry is considered a heavy polluted industry in Vietnam. This generates a high amount of wastewater which contains organic, nutrients and heavy metals. Thus, it is important to develop a suitable technology for pollution control from this industry.

Objectives

The research objectives are as follows:

  • Evaluate performance of membrane bioreactor (MBR) treating real tanning wastewater
  • Investigate membrane fouling behavior.

Overall research content

  • Study on physio-chemical and biological parameters of water and sludge at various operating conditions of MBR.

Qualification requirement

  • Passion for research, honest and responsibility

 

Length of the internship:  3-5 months
Coaching institution: Ho Chi Minh City University of Technology (HCMUT) & CARE-RESCIF
