Why OxyMem & the Membrane Aerated Biofilm Reactor (MABR) is changing the Wastewater industry

In 1914, around the same time Henry Ford was constructing his first assembly line for the model T, the Conventional Activated Sludge (CAS) process was developed. Since then the treatment of wastewater has used forced (or bubble) aeration to achieve a discharge standard. This is a highly wasteful process as 60-70% of the energy is wasted. To date there has been a lack of a commercially viable alternatives in aeration technology space….until now.

OxyMem unlocks the potential of fixed film technology offering the possibility of Energy Neutral Wastewater Treatment.

75% ENERGY SAVING

MABR media allows us to deliver oxygen directly to bacteria (8kgO2/kWh). OxyMem doesn’t have to overcome a hydrostatic head so the blower can operate at a much lower pressure (100-200 mbar).

INDUSTRIAL

50-80% TANK SAVINGS

MABR is a high rate process which can deliver a high packing density for biological treatment, typically 300m2/m3.

LANDFILL

50% LESS SLUDGE

MABR is fixed film and delivers a much lower sludge yield, 0.1-0.15kgTSS/kg COD removed as more of the COD is oxidized to CO2.

MUNICIPAL

ADD 50% MORE CAPACITY

Capacity & Retrofit with MABR (Smarter than IFAS).
Drop in IFAS style modules into existing tanks to transform overloaded, inefficient, or even obsolete wastewater treatment plants and make them capable of servicing much higher population equivalents in a matter of weeks.
