When is an MABR not an MABR? 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.
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?
The Wave of Disruption Disrupting an industry is always not about having a big idea or creating something new, often it is about a small idea that you can make big. Once these ideas are mainstream and the concept is launched it often turns out to be a simple solution have feels logical and people quickly adapt. In 1995 the term disruptive technology was coined by Clayton M. Christensen in an article written for the Harvard Business Review. Since then many of the most traditional industries have been profoundly changed by the introduction of disruptors.

Now in its 12th year, WEX Global has continued to build a great reputation as an important industry event for the leading organisations that are really making a difference in the world of water and energy. It was a great event in that many of the biggest industry leaders were present to discuss how important issues could possibly be resolved, globally. OxyMem, an Irish company manufacturing the most advanced MABR technology available today, were presented with two awards during the prestigious event, further showcasing the recognition the company is receiving from the industry.
Time for WasteWater Treatment Plants to Embrace the Latest Innovations We need access to clean water to survive and prosper. Water helps us maintain our existence and to enjoy sustainable lifestyles. We are all too aware of the issues associated with water shortages, however, and thus it is increasingly important that we also look at the impact of our sustained negligence in wastewater treatment infrastructure. The good news is innovation has caught up and there is a new breed of wastewater treatment solutions like MABR which can make a material difference to the efficacy of existing processes.
