Membrane Bioreactor (MBR)


Membrane Bioreactor (MBR)

  • Combination of micro/ultrafiltration with a biological process
  • Use of perm-selective or semi-permeable membrane, porosities ranging from 0.035 microns to 0.400 microns (depends on the manufacturer)
  • Reduced procedures such as secondary clarifiers and tertiary treatment
  • Advancement of organic and suspended solids elimination by immersing membranes into aeration system
  • Membranes in charged of solid/liquid separation through membrane pores
  • Biological processes support higher concentration of mixed liquor suspended solids (MLSS) hence reduce tank capacity
