Increase biological treatment capacity and effluent quality with MABR

 
 
 

Helping wastewater treatment plants reach their goals with our 'drop-in' membrane aerated biofilm reactor modules

Our MABR IFAS (Integrated Fixed-film Activated Sludge) design allows you to control cost through the incremental expansion of existing industrial and municipal activated sludge systems.

Our patented, bubble-less transfer of oxygen, designed to emulate a natural respiratory system, can provide simultaneous nitrification and denitrification to increase total nitrogen removal, energy savings up to 75%, reduces sludge by up to 50% and decreases your plant carbon footprint, when comparing with traditional CAS systems, with no additional infrastructure needed.

What is MABR?

MABR Increases Activated Sludge Plant Performance and Stability

The MABR habitat creates an ideal environment to support a very resilient biofilm that can better withstand hydraulic shock loads and process upsets. The biofilm absorbs and consumes carbon and nitrogen-based pollutants, but unlike conventional fixed film/biofilm systems (MBBR, RBC) it is incredibility energy efficient.

Incremental Increase in Biological Treatment Capacity, up to 50%

Our ‘drop-in’ technology increases the biological load that can be treated within the existing tank on site. Enhanced biological treatment performance, easy deployment and innovative biofilm control enables this. 

Up to 75% Less Energy Consumption on Additional Capacity

A significant increase in oxygen transfer efficiency and overall aeration system efficiency, coupled with the ideal habitat for biofilm growth means our solution can help move plants away from a 100 year old energy-intense bubble design.

Up to 50% Reduction in Waste Sludge

MABR system sludge age and biofilm layers help reduce the volume of waste sludge over conventional systems. Sludge transfer, storage, treatment and disposal costs are minimised. Fewer road tankers and less stress on our environment is a benefit to all.

Our MABR OxyFAS design (Integrated Fixed-Film Activated Sludge) can transform overloaded, inefficient, or even obsolete wastewater treatment plants into high efficiency facilities capable of handling larger loads.

Capacity boost for municipal and industrial wastewater treatment

The OxyFAS module delivers treatment capacity of 4kg of ammonia removal or 15kg of COD removal per day (or some of both). OxyFAS leverages the concept of IFAS with the power of MABR. With OxyFAS you can immediately transform overloaded, inefficient, or even obsolete wastewater treatment plants into high efficiency facilities capable of servicing much higher population equivalents in a matter of weeks. 

As plants move towards the end of their working life it often means wastewater is not being treated to the required discharge levels consistently throughout the year. These installations, perhaps in service 30 years or more, are operating well beyond their intended lifespan and beyond their intended capacity. These issues all contribute to an inefficient and unsustainable demand for energy.

Once on site, the OxyMem modules can be deployed in a matter of days to supplement the biological treatment capacity of an existing activated asludge process and increase the treatment capacity by up to 50% allowing, for either treatment capacity or improved  effluent quality. The OxyMem MABR can be retrofitted within a wastewater treatment plant of almost any size often without emptying the tank / basin and without the need for confined space entry etc.

  • An uplift on the original capacity in existing tanks (50%+) 
  • Incremental capacity increase with modular MABR allowing expandable design and enabling a more dynamic asset strategy. Plug and play installation with short start-up period (biofilm may take approx. 3-6 weeks to establish fully) 
  • An automated solution which operates in parallel with existing processes
  • Capital saving; controlled deployment year on year
  • No additional tanks needed for expansion
  • Energy savings; typical 4-7x saving on energy costs over CAS
  • Reduction in waste sludge production where sludge age is extended
