MBR Package Plants

MBR Plant

Membrane bioreactor (MBR) is a wastewater treatment process that combines membrane filtration with biological  treatment. This innovative technology offers several advantages over the conventional activated sludge process. Among these advantages are higher biomass concentration, eliminating the needs of secondary clarifiers and improved effluent quality.

MBR-1MENA-Water containerized MBR plant transforms sewage to clear and high quality water. The small footprint of the treatment system makes it easy to integrate it in natural, picturesque surroundings.

Membrane system has the core technology inside the MBR which consists of polypropylene plates with a polymeric membrane on each side. The membrane is welded on rigid frame. The module reduces virus and bacteria by 99.9999%. Filter plates are continuously aerated through bubble diffusers to keep them clean. The membranes don’t need regular chemical cleaning except one or two maintenance clearings per year.

MENA-Water has developed and manufactures package MBR plants inside ISO shipping containers for up to 1000 m3/day.
