Berghof's Innovation Day will feature speakers from the industrial sector − Steve Goodwin and Farid Turan have years of experience in the design, implementation and operation of sMBRs. Prof Heiner Strathmann will also be speaking and I’ll be making up the numbers.
The MBR Blog
A very recent analysis courtesy of Ecologix in Taiwan deconstructed the MBR technology of a small-scale plant into its constituent parts. When the components of MBR technology were considered, it is the membrane which makes up the lion’s share of the capital cost.
There doesn't appear to be a single aspect or component of MBR technology that has not been declared innovative by someone: the membrane material, membrane module, membrane aeration, frame, overall design − you name it, somebody somewhere has innovated it.
