Formation Mechanism and Performance of Dynamic Membrane Technology for Municipal Wastewater Treatment - A Review


Odey Emmanuel Alepu*, Giwa Abdulmoseen Segun and Harrison Odion Ikhumhen

This review presents the recent state of Dynamic membrane (DM) technology as the alternative for Ultrafiltration, Microfiltration and membrane bioreactor (MBR) system. DM technology involves the application of physical materials such as mesh or clothes as a barrier that enhances the formation of a cake layer on their surfaces. This technology has been used extensively in local filtration processes. DM has a lower risk of membrane fouling, lower capital cost and requires little energy compared to MBR. The performance of DM was evaluated to obtain a suitable method for membrane filtration technology. Further suggestion to encourage the application of this technology in wastewater treatment plant was given.
