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
(O)MBR's can be applied for the treatment of :
Wastewater from the waste processing industry
Wastewater on board of ships and off shore locations
