The overall objective of BioNexGen is to develop and test on pilot scale a new class of functional low fouling membranes for membrane bioreactor technology with high water flux and high rejection of organic pollutants with low molecular weight. The field tests with these newly developed membranes will be carried out with wastewater from 3 different industries (cosmetics, textiles and olive oil industry) which play an important role in the MENA countries and will be compared to conventional, commercially available membranes for benchmarking.

The project is broken down into 11 work packages with each contractor having a clearly defined role. Each work package is assigned a lead contractor, who is responsible for the coordination of the respective tasks in his or her work package and for communication to the coordinator.

BioNexGen is co-financed by the European Commission under the 7th Framework Programme
