Membrane BioReactors (MBRs)
Installing advanced wastewater treatment and water recycling systems for use new construction, renovations, and repairs for nitrogen sensitive areas – which allows for reductions in distance to groundwater and field size requirements or to meet onsite water reuse goals. Membrane BioReactors (MBRs) combine two basic processes — biological degradation through the activated sludge treatment process and membrane separation into a single process during which suspended solids and microorganisms responsible for degradation are separated from treated water by membrane filtration units, which pull water through a membrane with very small pores. The activated sludge process combined with membrane separation is able to achieve very high removal efficiencies of organic material, with greater than 95 percent common for biochemical oxygen demand and total suspended solids. In addition to removing biodegradable organics and suspended solids, MBRs remove a very high percentage of pathogenic organisms, providing disinfection of the effluent with 99.9% removal of fecal coliform. Bio-Microbics “Award-Winning” BioBarrier® GWMBR® (Greywater-only MBR), BioBarrier® MBR, and BioBarrier® HSMBR® (High-Strength MBR) are proven and approved technology to deliver consistently high-performance and results.
