OxyMem MABR Enhanced ammonia removal

Enhanced WWTP nitrification with OxyMem™ MABR Faster, stronger, harder… OxyMem™ MABR (Membrane Aerated Biofilm Reactor) is a unique biofilm system that can be used to intensify existing wastewater treatment facilities. A microbial film is established on millions of tiny gas-permeable membranes. This biofilm breaks down wastewater pollutants effectively with highly efficient oxygen transfer. Ammonia removal can be enhanced with every additional OxyMem™ unit added.

How to cut emissions from wastewater?

How to cut emissions from wastewater? On the 21st of September we not only celebrate Zero Emissions Day, but also we are asked to curb our emissions for 24 hours whenever it's possible.

Best time to plant a tree is today…

Best time to plant a tree is today… ...if you didn't plant it already. As one Chinese proverb says: The best time to plant trees was 20 years ago, the second-best time is today. Seasons and geographies may influence. In Ireland for example, the Agriculture and Food Development Authority recommends tree planting between November and March. Trees are dormant during this period and can be safely planted as bare-rooted trees. Planting outside of this seasonal window might be possible if using different variety of trees or techniques. Monty Don, a writer, broadcaster and gardening guru, gives a lot of advice and information on how and when to plant trees successfully, but the main recommendation is always to plant small, young trees as early as possible, i.e. 'now', whether you are enriching public spaces, your own garden or perhaps a large re-forestation area. Trees grow slowly, best start today.

OxyMem MABR Deployment and Retrofit

OxyMem MABR Deployment and Retrofit As easy as one, two, three… OxyMem MABR is and extremely easy means of enhancing treatment on an existing wastewater treatment plant. Upgrading and enhanced ammonia removal has never been easier. Individual modular MABR units (modules) are easy to load, transport and deploy. How and why?

Making Your Wastewater Treatment Plant More Efficient

Making Your Wastewater Treatment Plant More Efficient Wastewater Treatment plants are not usually the source of innovation - with many continuing to operate much as they did a few decades ago. However, you may have heard of some recent successes due to the commercial application of an innovative approach to treatment - using Membrane Aerated Biofilm Reactor (MABR) technologies. This solution is gaining a lot of attention around the world due to the quantified benefits that combine to improve overall operational efficiency. These benefits include significant improvements in energy efficiency, and reductions in tank footprint, in sludge production and in operator support time. Simply installing a number of MABR modules in an existing tank enhances treatment performance, and provides additional process capacity overnight. Key Benefits Include: 75% Energy Saving 50-80% Tank Savings 50% More Capacity So how do you explore whether you should be considering OxyMem for driving efficiencies at your plant? The following 3 step process will help you quickly evaluate whether this area warrants further exploration.
