Webinar: Convert your waste to energy with Anaerobic MBR

Berghof Membranes in collaboration with Aquabio and Compete Filtration Resources, Inc., are offering a free webinar on 20 September 2022 (at 4 pm CET / 9 am CST). This webinar is for industrial end-users that are looking for a simple and cost effective solution for highly loaded and biodegradable wastewater. Or even, to turn their valuable wastewater streams into a resource for biogas. In addition, the webinar offers great value to OEM companies and consultants that are looking into (further) developing their knowledge about AnMBR technology.

It’s no secret that the world’s need for energy is increasing, causing cost increases. What many don't realize is that many industries dispose a promising potential energy source every day. While typically seen as a nuisance, the organic matter contained in heavily loaded industrial wastewater can become a valuable resource with a simple and cost-effective anaerobic process - AnMBR.

AnMBR technology is ideal for the treatment of wastewater streams and slurry with high concentrations of organic matter, solids, fat, oil and grease which is a challenging combination for conventional granulated anaerobic systems. Typical these wastewater streams and slurry can be found in the: Food & beverage-, dairy-, distillery-, ethanol-, biodiesel-, and any other highly loaded wastewater.

You are invited to join Berghof Membranes' webinar on 20 September 2022 and learn more about the huge potential for anaerobic MBR technology.

Training and CPD

A practical guide to MBRs − getting them going, keeping them running

'A practical guide to MBRs − getting them going, keeping them running' is delivered online and draws on the 25 years of specialist knowledge of the subject from the course tutor, Simon Judd. This four-hour course focuses on the basics of membrane bioreactor technology, emphasising the real-world elements. It includes a tutorial where delegates can individually tackle a design problem, as well as an interactive exercise and an extended Q&A session.

MBR Insights remote training

Judd Water and Wastewater Consultants offers a range of specialist ‘continuing professional development’ water and wastewater treatment courses, including remote delivery packages. All our courses are modular so we can design a completely bespoke package to suit your particular training needs and budget.

Typically, courses last between one and five days and can include mp4 presentations, webinars, tutorials, assignments (group and individual) as well as open discussion forums and a copy of our book.

Courses can be delivered at your own location, or remotely (the latter meaning you don't incur travelling or accommodation expenses). We can also support you after your course.

Water reuse: calculating energy demand in membrane technology

When water is scarce − as is the case in many arid regions of the world − the only available options for water supply are seawater desalination and wastewater reuse. Both of these make extensive use of membrane technologies, and both have key design and operating parameters which define their performance and, ultimately, their cost. So what are the energy implications for using these technologies?

This four-hour course is directed at undergraduates with an interest in water reuse but who have no direct experience of the water industry. Learners are not expected to have any engineering knowledge but must be ready to perform calculations to work through the videos and mathematical equations in this course.

Learners start by looking at the fundamental relationships governing flow and pressure in water systems, building to a complete determination of energy consumption for both process options. By the end of the course, learners will have a basic understanding of membrane processes and will appreciate the importance of energy consumption of membrane technologies for seawater desalination and wastewater reuse.

This course is provided by Judd Water & Wastewater Consultants as a free resource on OpenLearn Create (The Open University).

The MBR Short Course

This course can be delivered at your location as a one-day crash course or as a more in-depth two-day course. It can also be combined with other courses to provide a comprehensive course on advanced wastewater treatment and reuse.

This course provides comprehensive, up-to-date information on the design and operational aspects of MBR technology and its applications. The course includes hard data from commercial technologies and actual reference sites. It is aimed at a broad section of stakeholders, including end users, consultants, contractors, regulators, technology providers and researchers in wastewater treatment technology for both industrial and municipal effluents.
