Title: Microbial behaviors involved in cake fouling in membrane bioreactors under different solids retention times

Abstract: Biomass characteristics and membrane performances in the MBRs operated at a high flux of 30 L/m2 h under different SRTs (10, 30 days, and infinity) were monitored. Results showed that more serious cake-fouling happened in the SRT-infinity MBR, which correlated with the activated sludge characteristics such as smaller floc size and greater EPS amount. DGGE analysis indicated that the microbial community shifted in different ways under various SRTs, which also influenced EPS productions in the MBRs. Different microbial communities were developed on the membrane surfaces at various operating stages and SRTs. Possibly, the activated sludge characteristics (such as MLSS concentration, EPS properties) and hydrodynamic conditions influenced by the SRTs were associated with cake layer development and membrane fouling propensity. Insight into the EPS characteristics and deposition behaviors of bacterial flocs will be crucial to explore appropriate biofouling control strategies in MBRs.
