MBR Solutions For Modern Industries


MBR technology in wastewater treatment is an advanced integration of conventional biological treatment and membrane filtration.

Following traditional biological treatment, the wastewater undergoes filtration through membranes (either microfiltration or ultrafiltration, depending on the application). These membranes effectively remove suspended solids, bacteria, and viruses, resulting in high-quality effluent that can be reused or safely discharged. In these integrated systems, the membranes replace the secondary clarifier and sand filters in a typical activated sludge treatment system.

MBR is highly adaptable, efficiently handling diverse wastewater types and load variations (and taking up much less space than traditional solutions), which makes it suitable for various applications including municipal, industrial, and residential wastewater treatment. Its compact and modular design is beneficial in areas with space constraints, and the superior quality of the treated water often meets stringent environmental standards and can be suitable for reuse.
