Abstract: In this chapter, we first discuss various aspects of current research efforts within the MENA countries focusing on current available published data. Secondly, using membrane technology (MT) in wastewater management, certain gaps of knowledge and overlapping activities are identified. Finally, recommendations pertinent to future research on MT are suggested to enhance their implementation as advanced sustainable water treatment processes. The findings of this chapter are based on authors` own experience, data collected from scholar literature (114 articles of 550 peer-reviewed papers) on the application of MT for both water and wastewater treatment, and 22 installed lab and full scale membrane based treatment systems. To compile data on MBR installations and published works from the countries under study, the WERF-Database and MBR-Network were accessed ( literature.php). National R&D programs for the MBR technology applications in wastewater treatment and reclamation have started in some Arab MENA countries, such as Algeria, Egypt, Morocco and Tunisia. Some of the research efforts made are presented and discussed.
