Membrane Bioreactors (MBR)

This biological treatment technique is similar to activated sludge with the exception that the settling tank used in the activated sludge process is replaced by membranes. The resulting water has virtually no suspended particles—to the naked eye it can look like drinking water. Its quality is equal to or better than that produced by a conventional wastewater treatment process. Membrane bioreactors can eliminate the need for an additional filtration process.
