Is your wastewater treatment plant struggling to cope with current demands?

Is your wastewater treatment plant struggling to cope with current demands?

Is your treatment plant running at maximum capacity.
Would you like to treat more process load?

Did you know you can increase biological capacity and future-proof your facility without having to build new structures, drain tanks or stop the current process?

OxyMem Wastewater  Website Photos (22)MABR can offer you some real benefits over conventional methods of upgrading your wastewater treatment plant.

Increase biological capacity without needing additional land or major civil works 
Our ‘drop-in’ MABR modules can increase the biological treatment capacity of your tank by up to 50%. The OxyMem MABR modules can be retrofitted within a wastewater treatment plant of almost any size often without emptying the tank. It may be as easy as installing a pump on a guiderail system. This means that to upgrade there is no need to purchase additional land or to build new infrastructure; saving you land (footprint), time, effort and cost.

Quick and easy installation
OxyMem’s MABR modules are quick and easy to install. There is no need to stop the process flow or drain your tank and personnel are not placed at risk by entering confined spaces or gaseous environments. All installations are carried out safely from outside the tank and the installation process may take only a couple of days to complete. Once installed, a biofilm will grow on the advanced MABR membranes within a matter of weeks.

Lower operational cost

OxyMem does not rely on bubbles to deliver oxygen to the bacteria. Instead the latest MABR technology uses hollow tubes to deliver oxygen directly to bacteria which grows on the external surface of  gas permeable membranes.  The mechanism of delivering oxygen is extremely efficient and results in much smaller blowers than conventional systems where oxygen is delivered by pumping air through diffusers to create bubbles - a very energy intensive process.

Advantages of OxyMem MABR over standard attached growth systems

Advantages of OxyMem MABR over standard attached growth systems OxyMem solves OPEX intensive wastewater treatment with an innovative ‘Drop in’ solution for wastewater treatment. Easily deployed OxyMem modules provide wastewater treatment plants with the simplest means of increasing their plant treatment capacity and effluent quality. Our patented  bubble-less transfer of oxygen emulates a natural respiratory system, providing highly efficient oxygen transfer and provides simultaneous nitrification and denitrification for total nitrogen removal. Save up to 75% on energy, reduce waste sludge by up to 50% and decrease your upgraded plant's carbon footprint when compared to traditional biological systems, with no additional infrastructure and no plant downtime.

When is an MABR not an MABR?

When is an MABR not an MABR? For a successful technology, reality must take precedence over public relations, for nature cannot be fooled." -Richard Feynman's referring to the laws of Nature"   The MABR is gaining a lot of attention recently for use in Water Resource Recovery Facilities and rightly so, as it can potentially expand the capacity of existing plants without the need for capital investment, while at the same time reducing the relative energy demand. This ground-breaking treatment technology which can achieve simultaneous nitrification and denitrification with reduced sludge generation now has installations in all corners of the globe.

MABR Technology creates new opportunities for growth.

MABR Technology creates new opportunities for growth MABR technology can be transformative for a business and can open the doors to new opportunities   Is your wastewater treatment capacity restricting your potential growth. All manufacturing activities produce wastewater, if your manufacturing facility is already producing high volumes of wastewater and you are close to breaching regulations, you may be faced with a barrier to expansion, limiting the potential growth of your company. Increased environmental awareness and a demand for greater environmental protection have meant that stricter regulations are being introduced, which business need to adhere to. Meeting compliance can have an impact on the growth potential of a company, as the volume of wastewater they produce is limited. Failure to comply with water discharge standards can result in severe legal and financial consequences.
