How does Membrane Bioreactor (MBR) work?

Membrane Bioreactor (MBR) is a type of biological wastewater treatment system utilizing membrane technology as the final clarifier. Initially, microorganisms are introduced into the wastewater, breaking down organic matter and contaminants. Biological treatment is followed up by Microfiltration (MF) or Ultrafiltration (UF) membrane filtration. MF and UF membranes contain small pores that act as a physical barrier to reject solids and microorganisms larger than the pore size.  Hydraulic crossflow is implemented to prevent membrane fouling.

The treated water, known as permeate or effluent, passes through the membrane pores, offering high-quality water with reduced solids and contaminants. The remaining solids are collected in a concentrated sludge stream, which can be returned to the bioreactor or further processed. Recirculation of a portion of the treated water enhances the efficiency of biological treatment. MBRs are prized for their compact design, excellent water quality, and adaptability in various wastewater treatment applications.

Benefits of Membrane Bioreactor (MBR) for water treatment



Enhanced Treatment Efficiency

MBR offers superior pollutant removal and pathogen reduction, ensuring compliance with stringent water quality standards.


Reduced Footprint

MBR's compact design allows for smaller infrastructure, saving valuable land space and reducing construction costs.


Flexible Expansion

MBR systems can be easily expanded or upgraded to accommodate increased water demand, providing scalability and adaptability.


High Reliability and Consistency

The advanced technology and automated processes of MBR result in stable and reliable water treatment performance.


Process Simplification

Integration of biological and physical treatment steps streamlines the water treatment process, reducing complexity and operational challenges.


Effluent Reuse Potential

MBR-treated water can often meet high-quality standards, making it suitable for various non-potable reuse applications, saving valuable freshwater resources.

Maintenance and servicing Membrane Bioreactor (MBR) systems

Regular maintenance is essential for Membrane Bioreactor (MBR) systems, ensuring optimal performance. Cleaning and inspecting membranes, pumps, and instrumentation should be carried out at least once every three months to prevent fouling and ensure smooth operation. Additionally, periodic checks of aeration systems, valves, and controls are necessary to identify and address potential issues promptly. Proper maintenance maximizes the lifespan of components and sustains efficient water treatment.

Cost of installing a Membrane Bioreactor (MBR) system

The cost of installing an MBR system depends on key technical factors: the chosen membrane type and material, system capacity (flow rate or treatment volume), membrane surface area, automation level, aeration system, membrane cleaning protocols, and site-specific considerations like available space and energy costs. Evaluating these factors thoroughly ensures accurate cost estimates for a customized MBR installation.
