H2O Innovation reveals its new wastewater treatment technology: the flexMBR
H2O Innovation Inc. has announced the release of the new flexMBRTM (flexible membrane bioreactor) technology, for advanced wastewater treatment applications. The new technology provides flexibility within membrane bioreactor systems allowing owners and engineers to choose between multiple membrane products for the same system at build time or in the future.
According to the company, the flexMBRTM is the first MBR with an open-source wastewater design that can operate MBR modules from different suppliers. It provides flexibility to switch from one membrane to another without having to redesign the treatment plant.
The flexMBRTM technology is ideally suited for new systems, but can also be incorporated into an existing wastewater treatment system. By choosing the flexMBRTM platform over a conventional MBR design, system owners have the flexibility to choose a different membrane model for replacement.
With this open-source approach, replacement of modules becomes a competitive process and is open to new module designs that will be developed in the future. This allows owners to take advantage of the latest technology and pricing options offered by membrane vendors.
This technology will be presented for the first time at the 31st Annual WateReuse Symposium, in Tampa, Florida, from 11−14 September 2016, with an official release on 24 September 2016 at the 89e Annual Water Environment Federation Technical Exhibition & Conference (WEFTEC), in New Orleans, Louisiana.
