Membrane Bioreactor MBR Sewage Treatment Plant Process

We design and manufacturer Membrane Bioreactor Sewage Treatment Plant STP


  • Membrane Bioreactor MBR

    We offer high quality Membrane Bioreactor used for industries for their sewage treatment plants , effluent treatment plants .The MBR process involves a suspended growth activated sludge system that utilizes microporous membranes for solid/liquid separation in lieu of secondary clarifiers. This very compact arrangement produces a MF/UF quality effluent suitable for reuse applications or as a high quality feed water source for Reverse Osmosis treatment. Indicative output quality of MF/UF systems include SS < 1mg/L, turbidity <0.2 NTU and up to 4 log removal of virus (depending on the membrane nominal pore size). In addition, it provides a barrier to certain chlorine resistant pathogens such as Cryptosporidium and Giardia.

    Advantages of Membrane Bioreactor

    • MBR plant requires only about half of the space required for conventional STP / ETP

    Kindly note MBR only requires half the space of conventional STP , in conventional STP Retention time used to be 20 hours to 24 hours

    • MBR plant generates highly stabilized sludge of low volume

    • High quality treated water is generated from MBR plant

    • Sludge bulking, sludge rising, etc problems associated with clarifier unit are eliminated

    MBR Limitations

    • MBR requires fine screening (1 mm OR LESS) - more expensive than standard waste water screening.

    • MBR requires high MLSS recirculation rates - AS permeate is removed through the membranes , the already high conc of SS at the membrane Surface of MBR increases and fouling rates are compounded . This requires recirculating MLSS within the bioreactor and thus results in large amount of Energy Consumption.

    • Low Peak Flow Tolerance – with the high membrane fouling environment constraining the flux , the MBR has very low peak flow tolerance , hence it requires large Equalization Tank Volume

    • The HIGH MLSS concentration of MBR reduces oxygen transfer efficiency within the Bioreactor , resulting in higher energy requirement in order to aerate the bioreactor


    • Nutshell The main Disadvantages of MBR is the high initial cost and regular cleaning of membrane filters at least once in 48 hours
