With the continuing urbanization explosion and an increase in industrialization, the need for clean water is estimated to increase by 400% before the end of 2050. The pressing need to reuse treated wastewater for industrial and domestic purposes has continued to fuel the need for more efficient and carbon conscious treatment methods.

Membrane Aerated Biofilm Reactor (MABR) systems have revolutionized the way domestic wastewater is treated. MEB’s turnkey implementation of the MABR adds further to the reliable and cost-effective solution for treating wastewater, providing communities around the globe with a sustainable and safe source of water.

The core element of the MABR technology is the patented spirally wound membrane. The membrane aerated biofilm reactor uses a semi-permeable membrane to effectively remove organic matter, nutrients, and pollutants from domestic wastewater.

The benefits technology offers can no longer be overlooked.

  • The MABR is modular and allows owners to increase the capacity of an existing wastewater treatment plant with a nominal footprint, even for retrofitting.
  • Owners can now increase the capacity, as and when required, and no longer need to account for extremely long engineering design and construction timelines.
  • Technology continues to disrupt the wastewater sector with the significantly reduced amount of energy used as compared to conservative systems.
  • Helps boost low carbon and net zero emission goals.
  • Easy to operate and can be fully monitored and automated. Required minimal operator attention, making this solution one of the lowest OPEX over the lifecycle of the system.
  • Water can be further treated to potable drinking water or used for irrigation with minimal environmental disturbance.

These systems allow for a much more efficient and cost-effective approach to treating sewage, taking up less space, and reducing costs in the long run. MABR technology concentrates all the stages of wastewater treatment into one flexible solution, and its many advantages include:

  • MABR systems use significantly less area than traditional activated sludge treatment tanks.
  • MABR systems can be customized to fit the needs of any municipality or community. The membrane surface area in the system is designed to maximize performance efficiency which leads to higher process efficiency and lower energy consumption.
  • Highly reliable operation – MABR systems are designed with multiple redundancies to ensure that they don’t fail even under the most extreme conditions.
  • Low maintenance requirements – MEB reactors have very low maintenance requirements and can even alert operators when something needs attention before it has a chance to become a problem.

The advantages provided by MABR technology make it an attractive option for municipalities around the globe who are looking for an efficient, cost-effective solution for solving water shortages and pollution issues.
