Membrane bioreactor (MBR)

Membrane bioreactors are used in wastewater treatment. In a membrane bioreactor the final settler is replace by a membrane systems, resulting in a compact and highly efficient biological treatment system. Membrane bioreactors are used in industrial and municipal wastewater streams and manure treatment

In membrane bioreactors membrane (MBR) filtration is combined with a biological process. The membrane filtration process can be a pressure driven membrane like UF, but alsoFO, the Osmotic Membrane Bioreactor (OMBR).  The biological process can be either aerobic or anaerobic. Advantage of the O-MBR is the low fouling tendency of the FO membrane and the excellent treated water quality after the RO-process ready for reuse.

Advantages of (O)MBR processes are:

  • Small foot print due to high biomass concentrations

  • Excellent treated water quality

  • Low sludge production

Osmotic-Membrane Bioreactor

(O)MBR's can be applied for the treatment of :

  • Industrial wastewater

  • Wastewater from the waste processing industry

  • Domestic wastewater

  • Wastewater on board of ships and off shore locations
