2013 : Bacterial Identification in Hybrid Membrane Bioreactor of Palm Oil Mill Effluent (POME)

Prof. Dr. Ir. Sarwoko Mangkoedihardjo MScES


Microorganisms identification is needed in order to recognize high efficiency of pollutant removal in a hybrid membrane bioreactor of palm oil mill effluent (POME). The aim of this study is fullfilled microorganisms identification with using real time polymerase chain reaction (PCR). The series reactors is used which consisted of anaerobic, anoxic, and lastly aerobic membrane bioreactor called as hybrid membrane bioreactor. The dominant bacterial genus in hybrid MBR was Bacillus sp.
