The aerated bioreactor is a promising technology for wastewater treatment. Activated carbon fiber (ACF) used as a biomembrane carrier in wastewater disposal has attracted much more concern recently. The high modulus polyacrylonitrile (PAN)-based ACF was successfully used as a biomembrane carrier for hard-to-biodegrade industrial organic wastewater disposal in a lab-scale aerated biomembrane reactor at room temperature. The biocompatibility test shows that the biomembrane grows quickly on the ACF filler (ACFF) surface; bacteria and microzoon can breed on the ACFF surface at high chemical oxygen demand (COD) concentration. The COD removal rate tests show that the ACFF bioreactor has high capability to remove COD.
