Brief description A novel two-stage system consisting of a downflow hanging sponge biological reactor (DHS) and submerged membrane-adsorption hybrid system (SMAS) will be developed in this study. The DHS modified to incorporate solid separation and superior organics, and nitrogen removal will be an excellent pretreatment system that features minimum energy requirement and on sludge production. The post treatment of SMAS is to be studied to optimize aeration, biological activity on activated carbon will remove the remaining organics, solids, bacteria and majority of viruses. The developed hybrid system will be a cost- effective system in water reuse in small communities.
