Membrane Bioreactor (MBR) - Benefits
The application of MBR technology represents the state-of-the-art technology for treating biological wastewater bringing the following benefits with it:

  • Continuous superior effluent quality independent of flow variations (heavy rain), floating sludge, etc.
  • Compact footprint (high level of biomass & elimination of clarifier)
  • Scalable (the modular nature of membrane modules provides for very flexible plant concepts that can “grow”, allowing investments to be made only when needed)
  • Class A reuse water
  • Easy operation
  • Low maintenance
  • Disinfection equipment is reduced or eliminated
  • Fully automated operation
  • Increased sludge age approves treatment capability
  • Lower waste sludge production
  • Operation at higher MLSS (mixed liquor suspended solid) concentration of 8,000 - 20,000 g/l resulting in a more robust process
  • Sludge generated from process requires less thickening due to the high solid content
  • Removal of toxins (carcinogenic, mutagenous, and hormonally active) and bio-accumulative micro-contaminants.
  • Post-treatment technology such as nano-filtration and reverse osmosis can be applied
Membrane Bioreactor (MBR) - Applications
  • Decentralized commercial & residential MBR plants
  • Compact containerized MBR package plants
  • Larger scale MBR plants
  • Water reuse and recycling facilities
  • Military camps - mobile MBR package units
  • Commercial users
  • Industrial users
  • Real estate developers
  • Small municipal communities
  • Areas that have enacted stringent wastewater effluent regulations
  • Sludge dewatering (up to 3%)
  • Industries that are forced to update their current treatment facilities
  • Emphasis on areas with declining water resources
  • Biological landfill leachate treatment
