    Membranes are considerably a physical technology for wastewater treatment, which has existed since the 1960s. However, membrane technology has increased and extended in application in recent years and this technique was promising treatment technologies. This is partly due to strong regulations in industrialized countries regarding effluent quality as well as increasing global water scarcity. Because of the water scarcity in the Middle East countries, these countries need to treat the wastewater for another uses and purposes such as irrigation. The present study aimed to compare the convention wastewater treatment and the membrane bioreactor technology in treatment of municipal wastewater. The observation showed that the removal percentages of COD, BOD, TSS, ammonia, TN, TP, oil & grease and phenol were between 92.5 to 99.8%, while the removal per.. View More»
