Membrane bio-reactor

Where space is scarce, a wastewater treatment plant’s footprint can be limited by replacing the sedimentation step by a compact membrane water/sludge separation device, which produces a high-quality effluent and reduces the volume of the bioreactor.

Since the filtrate cannot pass the membranes, it is virtually free of suspended solids and bacteria and ready for reuse or for further treatment by reverse osmosis.

Membrane bioreactor concepts

Our membrane bio reactors can either be placed externally, i.e. in an external loop to the bioreactor (X-TRACTOR® MBR) or they can be submerged in the activated sludge, i.e. in the bioreactor itself (ATLANTIS® MBR).

Both membrane bioreactor concepts have their own advantages and they have their own range of application.
