  • Abstract : Membrane technology is one of the most promising engineering strategies for freshwater production and wastewater treatment. The major concern results in the formation of a fouling layer leading to increasing hydraulic resistance and flux decline during membrane operations. A one-dimensional continuous model has been developed by considering a free boundary value problem describing biofouling dynamics in membrane bioreactors. Numerical results demonstrated the model accuracy in predicting biofouling effects and the implications on process management.
