What is Membrane Bioreactor (MBR) Technology?

Membrane Bioreactor technology, as introduced by Kevin, is an advanced step in wastewater treatment, combining conventional biological treatment processes with membrane filtration. This innovative approach ensures high-quality effluent by integrating the best of both worlds. SPERTA’s MBR technology, in particular, showcases significant advancements in efficiency and effectiveness.

Traditional Treatment vs MBR Treatment

A critical part of the seminar was the comparison between traditional wastewater treatment methods and MBR. Kevin highlighted several disadvantages of conventional treatments, such as their larger footprint, lower effluent quality, higher sludge production, and sensitivity to load variations.

In contrast, MBR technology shines with its smaller footprint, superior effluent quality, reduced sludge production, and robustness against load fluctuations. This segment effectively stressed the need to shift towards more efficient and sustainable wastewater treatment methods like MBR.
