- ... N-acyl homoserine lactones (AHLs) based quorum sensing has been reported to be one of the main causes of biofouling in membrane bioreactor (MBR) for wastewater treatment. In this study, Rhodococcus sp. entrapped in sodium alginate beads with effective volume of 0.1% of bioreactor were used for the degradation of signal molecules to stop quorum sensing mechanism in MBR. QQ-MBR (with quorum quenchin ...
