Save energy with passive aeration wastewater treatment

By Chemical Engineering |

This company’s flat-sheet Membrane Aerated Biofilm Reactors (MABR; photo) provide high-effluent wastewater-treatment solutions with 90% less energy and 50% less sludge, according to the manufacturer. The MABR is a spirally wound air sleeve submerged in a tank, to which wastewater is fed continuously and effluent is discharged by overflow. This passive aeration process saves energy by eliminating the need to blow air. The design is said to ensure robust, efficient, durable, clog-free operation. The MABR is suitable for small- to medium-sized plants, providing quiet and odorless wastewater treatment solutions, while enabling the re-use of wastewater for irrigation. — Emefcy Ltd., Caesarea Industrial Park, Israel
