MBR technology supplied

Proprietary membrane products and systems:
  • Aerobic MBR
  • Anaerobic MBR (AnMBR)
Technology configuration:


Technology description:

The ADI-MBR system can be used as a stand-alone process or to polish anaerobically pretreated wastewater to a quality suitable for reuse, and can meet strict discharge limits. Advantages include: easy operation/maintenance, reduces/eliminate disinfection, low TMP operation, small footprint, and reduce sludge production.

The ADI-AnMBR is a high-rate anaerobic process that uses a membrane barrier to perform the gas-liquid-solids separation and reactor biomass retention functions. This near-absolute barrier to solids ensures efficient system operation and stability, even under high organic loading and intense mixing scenarios. Since gravity settling is not required, higher organic loadings and mixing intensities can be employed than with other anaerobic technologies.
