Summary of "Anaerobic treatment of N,N-dimethylformamide-containing high-strength wastewater by submerged anaerobic membrane bioreactor with a co-cultured inoculum."

The anaerobic treatment of wastewater containing approximately 2000 mg LN,N-dimethylformamide (DMF) was conducted by a lab-scale submerged anaerobic membrane bioreactor (SAnMBR). The inoculum consisted of aerobic DMF-hydrolyzing activated sludge (DAS) and anaerobic digested sludge (ADS). A rapid start-up was achieved with thorough DMF methanogenic degradation on the first day. The results of a 250-day long-term experiment demonstrated that under a low organic loading rate (OLR) of 3.14-4.16 g COD L d, SAnMBR maintained excellent DMF removal efficiency along with high methane conversion. However, the elevation of OLR significantly limited DMF hydrolysis. When OLR exceeded 6.54 g COD L d, both removal efficiency and methane production dramatically dropped. The DMF-hydrolyzing bacteria originating from the DAS gradually decayed under the anaerobic condition, resulting in the weak hydrolysis of DMF. The shortening of hydraulic retention time (HRT) is not recommended for the SAnMBR because severe membrane fouling occurred when HRT was shortened to 8 h. To handle high OLRs, an appropriate solution is to maintain a low F/M ratio by increasing both the influent DMF concentration and sludge concentration. The high CH content in the biogas, exceeding 85%, was shown to be the reason for the suitability of anaerobic treatment to DMF. Some improvements which would help to maintain the effective hydrolysis are proposed: a side-stream system to replenish DAS to the SAnMBR is helpful; slight dosage of nitrate could also help to enrich the DMF-hydrolyzing bacteria; and the co-digestion of DMF and other organics might be convenient to establish a stable DMF-degrading consortium.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The mineral magnesium ammonium phosphate with the formula NH4MgPO4. It is associated with urea-splitting organisms in a high magnesium, high phosphate, alkaline environment. Accumulation of crystallized struvite is found in the urinary tract as struvite CALCULI and as scale on sewage system equipment and wastewater pipes.

The internal resistance of a material to moving some parts of it parallel to a fixed plane, in contrast to stretching (TENSILE STRENGTH) or compression (COMPRESSIVE STRENGTH). Ionic crystals are brittle because, when subjected to shear, ions of the same charge are brought next to each other, which causes repulsion.

Garbage, refuse, or sludge, or other discarded materials from a wastewater treatment plant, water supply treatment plant, and air pollution control facility that include solid, semi-solid, or contained material. It does not include materials dissolved in domestic sewage, irrigation return flows, or industrial discharges.

The amount of force generated by MUSCLE CONTRACTION. Muscle strength can be measured during isometric, isotonic, or isokinetic contraction, either manually or using a device such as a MUSCLE STRENGTH DYNAMOMETER.

A colorless, odorless, highly water soluble vinyl monomer formed from the hydration of acrylonitrile. It is primarily used in research laboratories for electrophoresis, chromatography, and electron microscopy and in the sewage and wastewater treatment industries.
