What Is Membrane Bioreactor

Membrane Bioreactor

Membrane bioreactor is known to be a wastewater treatment processes whereby a perm-selective membrane such as ultrafiltration and microfiltration is used together with a biological process that is a suspended growth bioreactor.The municipal waste and also industrial waste use this process for treatment.

When membrane bioreactor is used with domestic waste,the membrane bioreactor produces effluent that is of high quality and can be disposed to waterways,coastal waterways or even be used for urban irrigation.All commercial membrane bioreactors that are there today use a membrane as a filter thereby reject the solids that are developed through the biological process hence produce disinfected effluent.

A membrane bioreactor is of importance in that it retains solids completely.Therefore in the bioreactor, the solid retention time can be controlled separately from hydraulic retention time.Also the membrane bioreactor produce a disinfected effluent that is of high quality therefore can be disposed to water bodies or other places.Due to the reduced pore size of the membrane,the treated effluent is seen to be of high quality with no contamination.

Additionally,due to the longer retention time there is the production of better biotreatment.Their slower growing microorganisms that is encouraged by the conditions of biotreatment especially for the nitrifiers.Membrane bioreactor from GIANTECH Engineering is well known for biological removal of ammonia through the nitrification process.Plant footprint are affected by the retention of solids and also increase in solids retention time that results in high generation of biomass.

Membrane bioreactors is seen not to be the best waste water treatment technology but it’s said to be very expensive than other choices.Most people prefer using this technology for treating waste water applications and water.This technology has been put up in most countries thereby gaining its popularity and also making most grow in business through it.You can try using this technology and see whether it can work for you comparing with other waste treatment choices.
