Wastewater technology provides numerous possibilities for decarbonizing industry. Not only is it a cost-effective solution, but it also has the potential to reduce carbon dioxide emissions significantly. With smart implementation strategies and robust regulation of industry practices, this proven technology could make a significant contribution to reducing global carbon emissions and reducing climate change.
The MABR technology uses a semi-permeable membrane and aeration to treat wastewater and produce high-quality effluent, providing an efficient way for communities to address their water supply needs. It also helps to reduce the environmental impact of wastewater treatment discharge by removing pollutants and contaminants from the water process with the reduced need for chemical dosing. We combine the powerful MABR with fluid analytics tools, to improve an already powerful solution.
Wastewater technology has a diverse range of potential applications, from capturing carbon and storing it safely, to storing energy harvested from wastewater. By using microbial fuel cells, it is possible to produce electricity from wastewater while reducing pollution levels.
MABR: A Green Technology for Reducing Environmental Pollution
The world is at a critical point—we must reduce our carbon emissions if we want to have any hope of reversing the negative effects of climate change. It’s time for the industrial sector to step up and take responsibility, and one way they can do this is by investing in green technologies like Membrane Aerated Biofilm Reactors (MABR).
MABR technology is based on the principles of wastewater treatment, using anaerobic bacteria to reduce biological oxygen demand and convert organic matter into harmless byproducts. By using microorganisms, MABR technology provides a low-cost, high-efficiency way to reduce environmental pollution while cutting CO2 emissions.
Additionally, MABR can be used to meet the increasing demands for clean water resources in areas with limited supply. It uses membrane technology to separate wastewater particles from clean water, making it suitable for use in irrigation or other applications. This makes MABR an effective way to reclaim wastewater while reducing water and energy consumption.
The MABR is a viable option for helping with the decarbonization of the industrial sector as well as providing a cost-effective solution for meeting the increasing demands on water resources.
So why is MABR technology such a big deal? Here’s what you need to know:
Reduced Carbon Footprint
MABR technology significantly reduces carbon emissions by reducing energy usage and wastewater quality deterioration. It uses a combination of energy efficient fine bubble diffuser coupled with carefully designed components for wastewater treatment, which uses up to 80% less energy compared to conventional technologies. Plus, it doesn’t require the use of thermal or chemical processes that emit additional carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases into the atmosphere.
Increased Efficiency and Savings
This innovative technology also increases efficiency in wastewater treatment plants, as it enables real-time process monitoring, as well as more precise control of maintenance and repair needs. This results in enhanced performance and improved cost savings for operators when measured against traditional biological processes.
Reduced Water Consumption
MABR technology conserves water because it requires no recirculation, instead using air or oxygen as media for microbial growth.
