Abstract: In this paper, technologies are assessed for the purpose of water reuse in three different regions of the United States, California, Florida, and Texas, with similar effluent treatment requirements but distinctly different cost factors for operating and capital costs. This abstract presents a desktop study of three different state-of-the-art biological treatment technologies – moving bed biological reactor (MBBR), integrated fixed film activated sludge (IFAS) reactor and membrane bioreactor (MBR) – with respect to the conventional activated sludge (CAS).
