This paper describes the development and optimization of an anaerobic membrane bioreactor for the treatment of mixed waste (i.e., municipal wastewater and food waste) and production of biogas for small and decentralized communities. A cross-flow ceramic ultrafiltration membrane pilot was backpulsed and operated intermittently at high cross flow velocity minimized cake-layer formation and fouling.
