incorporating simultaneous storage and growth concept: an especial attention to fouling while modeling the biological process
... the process seems greatly helpful for optimization and control. Several researches have shown the importance of extra-cellular polymeric substances (EPS) their role in explaining the two-step with sudden jump in TMP vs. time. But, the crucial point remains about the prediction of the EPS concentratio ...

Characteristics of soluble microbial products and extracellular polymeric substances in the membrane bioreactor for water reuse
... some portion of organic material originating from soluble microbial products (SMP) that is closely related with extracellular polymeric substances (EPS), although the biological activity is maximized. These SMP should be considered important target materials if additional processes are necessary t ...
Desalination 202 (2006)
Extracellular polymeric substances (EPS) are considered as the major cause of membrane fouling in membrane bioreactors. Recent studies have revealed a linear relationship between foulin ...
