About HaYogev MABR wastewater treatment plant

  • Flat sheet MABR decentralised wastewater treatment plant
  • 125,000 litres per day
  • Commissioned/installed date: September 2016

The customer was looking for a localized wastewater treatment solution to replace the existing pond system, which faced difficulties in treating the wastewater due to high levels of nutrients. A new state-level regulation concerning reclaimed water required the wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) operator to reduce the nutrients in the effluent stream. The solution had to be odourless, quiet, have low power consumption and use the existing location.

The MABR-based wastewater treatment solution was chosen due to its extremely low energy consumption, low operating costs, high effluent quality and neighbourhood-friendly design.

Fluence Membrane Aerated Biofilm Reactor (MABR) technology is an innovative wastewater treatment solution ideal for decentralised municipal plants. The MABR WWT solution is modular and reduces energy usage by up to 90% compared to conventional treatment.

MABR is based on passive aeration, that is, the diffusion of oxygen through membranes. During the process, an aerobic nitrifying biofilm develops on the surface of the membranes, which enables simultaneous nitrification and denitrification (SND). This minimizes carbon deficiency and results in low total nitrogen in the effluent. This simple, low-maintenance technology produces high-quality water suitable for discharge or for use in irrigation or grey water.
