Hydrogen-based membrane-biofilm rector solves oxidized contaminant problems

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

6 Scopus citations


A hollow-fibre membrane-biofilm reactor (HFMBfR) for microbial reduction using hydrogen gas is described. The system uses bacteria to convert pollutants in water into harmless end products. Virtually all of the hydrogen passing through the membrane is used to reduce the oxidized contaminants. Use of the reactor to treat perchlorates and nitrates is described. The commercialization of the HFMBfR is outlined.
