Membrane bioreactors (MBRs) combine biological wastewater treatment methods like activated sludge with membrane processes like microfiltration or ultrafiltration. For the treatment of municipal and industrial wastewater, it is currently widely employed. A submerged membrane bioreactor (SMBR) and a side stream membrane bioreactor are the two fundamental MBR variants.
In a sidestream membrane bioreactor, which is an additional step following biological treatment, the membrane is situated outside the reactor and is not submerged in the effluent as it is in an SMBR setup.
Due to a lack of water, efforts have been made to reuse it after proper treatment, or “water reclamation” (also called wastewater reuse,water reuse or water recycling). Membrane procedures stand out among the existing treatment options to reclaim wastewater for their ability to retain particles and salts and even disinfect water.
A material that permits the selective flow of specific chemicals is called a membrane. In order to purify or regenerate water, water must pass through a membrane while holding unwanted particles on the other side. Better pollutant retention might be achievable depending on the type of membrane.
The membrane can be created using a variety of materials. The number of materials utilised to build a membrane differs from that in other fields in the wastewater treatment industry due to a variety of operating constraints.
Chemical and mechanical resistance for five years of operation, highly acidic or basic properties, or the capacity to function in a wide pH range are some of the qualities required in a membrane for wastewater treatments.
MBR methods can provide effluent of a high enough quality when utilised with household wastewater to be discharged into the sea, oceans, surfaces, brackish bodies, or streams for use in urban irrigation.
In addition to these benefits, MBRs have a minor environmental impact, are simple to retrofit, and may upgrade older wastewater treatment facilities. Comparing MBR procedures to traditional settlement separation systems, it is possible to operate MBR operations at greater mixed liquor suspended solids (MLSS) concentrations while maintaining the same loading rate.
There are two MBR configurations: external/side stream, where membranes are a separate unit process needing an intermediary pumping step, and internal/submerged, where membranes are immersed in and intrinsic to the biological reactor.
GLOBAL MOBILE MBR INTEGRATED SEWAGE TREATMENT EQUIPMENT MARKET SIZE AND FORECAST
The Global Mobile MBR Integrated Sewage Treatment Equipment market accounted for $XX Billion in 2022 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2023 to 2030.
For various types of vessels, Evac has created a new, mid-sized version of the Evac Membrane Bioreactor (MBR) wastewater treatment facility. All wastewater streams are treated using the innovative Evac MBR Mid-range to the highest industry requirements. By filtering up to of microplastic particles and incorporating the option for nutrient removal, it provides the greatest treatment outcomes possible.
Since the treated water can be reused or put through additional processing onboard the ship, the effluent quality is quite high. One of Evac’s Sustainability Spearhead Products, the Evac MBR, is the brains behind a cutting-edge wastewater treatment.
By treating and discharging all wastewater produced by passengers and crew without endangering human health or the marine environment, vessels are able to operate in environmentally sensitive locations. This is made possible by including a nutrient removal unit in the system.
The most recent iteration of Evac MBR is totally autonomous, has a durable design, and requires little maintenance. As the tanks are completely constructed of stainless steel, there is no need to coat the inside or exterior of them, which improves corrosion resistance. Moreover, sensors and pipe configurations have been changed for safer and simpler operation, and the membrane cleaning process has been enhanced.
Compared to its predecessor, the new improved design is more compact and necessitates a smaller footprint onboard the vessel. Smaller passenger ships with fewer wastewater streams onboard, offshore sites, and superyachts of all sizes are perfect applications for the mid-range MBR.
