Technology description:

MBR technology enhances waste water treatment efficiency. Using membranes to separate sludge ensures much higher quality for treated water free from suspended solids. Combination with RO membranes allow producing water quality as good as potable water. Membranes can retain activated sludge at high concentrations, allowing BOD as well as Nitrogen to be removed more efficiently. Unique membrane configuration having an immense number of minuscule pores delivery stable high water permeability with minimal clogging and higher permeated water quality.
