Human activities, particularly from industrial zones, produce a large volume of wastewater that contains high levels of toxic chemicals and causes serious environmental problems and detrimental impacts on human health. Therefore, industrial wastewater discharge must meet the stringent water quality permissible limits to prevent the problem associated with the effluent released to the environment. Recently, Anaerobic Membrane Bioreactor (AnMBR) has been considered as an attractive approach for the treatment of industrial wastewaters due to its ability to offset the disadvantages of conventional anaerobic treatment and aerobic membrane bioreactor (MBR). Besides, biogas production by AnMBR as a means of obtaining renewable energy can provide many benefits to fulfill partially the world’s energy needs. This book chapter discusses the fundamentals of AnMBR, application of AnMBR for various stream of industrial wastewater treatment, biogas production, membrane fouling, and future prospective for further research.
