AnMBR: Anaerobic Digestion And Membrane Bioreactor Technology Combined

AnMBR is the latest innovation in anaerobic reactor configuration: a combination of anaerobic digestion and membrane bioreactor technology, which concentrates solid digestate without the use of centrifuges or dissolved air flotation (DAF).

It combines Anaerobic Digestion with Membrane Bio-Reactor technology to make the most of renewable energy production while creating high-quality effluent.

With its strong experience in wastewater treatment through anaerobic digestion, Fluence has created process that guarantees the production of renewable energy and low sludge.

The advantages of utilizing a bioreactor, combined with the membranes in the Membrane Bio Reactor (MBR) maximize the effectiveness of the anaerobic process with a minimum space requirement.

AnMBR finds its perfect fit in industries with highly concentrated wastewater (COD > 40,000 ppm) and with streams containing fat, sugars, proteins, starch and alcohol. It can treat hard wastewater without additional treatment steps, with a substantial reduction of costs and energy consumption.
