Smart Aeration

OxyMem is the brand name for our bubbleless aeration system, the Membrane Aerated Biofilm Reactor (MABR)

The Holy Grail of wastewater treatment is to find a low cost and low energy aeration treatment solution. Aeration is the cornerstone of biological wastewater treatment and controls the treatment performance and operational economics of the entire wastewater treatment facility. The aeration process has not essentially changed for the last 100 years, until now….


OxyMem is a breakthrough technology for wastewater aeration. Up to now the aeration process has relied on ‘forced’, or ‘bubble aeration’ to deliver oxygen to the bacteria that breakdown the wastewater. OxyMem doesn’t rely on a bubble to deliver oxygen, instead we use a gas permeable membrane to deliver oxygen directly to the microorganisms. This allows OxyMem to deliver oxygen far more efficiently than conventional technologies. OxyMem is typically four times more energy efficient than best in class solution available today. This is just one of the many benefits we deliver.
