Our MABR modules can either help improve the effluent quality on an existing plant or enable increased flows to travel through a treatment plant while maintaining the same effluent standards.
Seasonal process load variations can place significant stress on a wastewater treatment plant and drastically affect effluent quality. We understand that the capacity of a plant can increase substantially at certain times of the year, making it difficult to meet environmental targets. Our team have solved this problem offering plant owners, for the first time, the opportunity to expand the treatment capacity annually as demand increases. The OxyMem solution is an ideal approach to treating fluctuations in process load.
MABR is one of the many steps needed to help us meet local and international environmental goals. Nitrous Oxide, a gas often produced when treating wastewater, is 100 times more harmful to the environment than carbon dioxide. As wastewater is a necessary evil in our daily lives, it is essential that the world looks to treatment methods that minimise harmful gas emissions. OxyMem's superior denitrification process is a benefit to our environment.
Increased environmental protection is a focus across the world today, and new regulations designed to improve our environment are continually implemented. Failure to comply with water discharge standards can result in serious legal consequences and, with today's informed consumers, a poor company image can be detrimental to your success. OxyMem helps you exceed current standards and provides you with the peace of mind you need to focus on increasing your production and growing your business.
Our 'drop-in' modules drastically improve the quality of wastewater discharged back into the environment. Within the same tank footprint we breakdown more wastewater pollutants. Nitrogen concentrations of less than 5 mg per litre are possible with a single pass system; without a re-circulation pump and a post denitrification reactor.
One of the biggest risks when adopting a new technology for industrial wastewater treatment is stopping the production. We understand how a hold up in production can cause problems with suppliers and effect profits. Our solution means you can continue producing as we install.
The installation of our modules takes only a matter of days.
Minimal on-site supervision is required over a period of weeks, while the biofilm becomes established and while performance optimised for the plant. We do not require highly skilled staff to operate our systems and OxyMem offer remote support should an online/ dial-in function be installed.
Our modules are designed for ease of installation and commissioning, and can be easily transported across the world; having been designed to neatly fit within seafreight containers.
Less sludge to transfer and dispose of helps protect our environment and reduces operational costs, and staff time. The logistics of finding approved landbanks and treatment facilities can be eased with a low-sludge producing design such as MABR.
More process load is broken down by the attached biofilm due to the biological nature of the process and a resulting long sludge age.
The MABR habitat creates an ideal environment to support a very resilient biofilm that can withstand hydraulic shock loads and process upsets.
Our patented airlift technology enhances biofilm-pollutant contact to improve performance without the issues found with mechanical mixers. Wastewater is effectively dispersed throughout each module to achieve optimum treatment.
The nature of MABR biofilm technology enables simultaneous nitrification and denitrification. Without specifically targeting denitrification, approximately 50% of the oxidised ammonia (Nitrate) is removed via denitrification as a matter of course.
Our optimised drop-in modules have been designed with the concerns of engineers and owners in mind. Enhancing treatment no longer means changing your process stream.
Units are dropped into tanks without affecting existing processes in any way and can be easily removed at will, simply reverting you back to your previous plant performance.
In addition to lowest energy consumption, our modules require no scheduled maintenance, require no additional skilled labour and may reduce the volume of waste sludge on your site. With discharge legislation tightening annually and energy costs constantly on the rise, it is beneficial to know a lowest TOTEX solution exists through the use of MABR.
Our modules are made from high quality, long lasting materials and are designed for installation in the most demanding wastewaters. The life expectancy of our membranes in domestic wastewater is 20 years. Extended product warranties can be offered on industrial applications.
As a leading Water Utility serving 8.5 million customers in the UK, we are constantly on the look-out for game-changing innovative technologies and approaches that will bolster our position as effective leaders in wastewater treatment. We’ve been working closely with OxyMem for a number of years, facilitating the development of their MABR technology by providing testing facilities at our Minworth WWTP. The exciting potential of the MABR technology and the strength of the OxyMem team were immediately apparent to us, and we continue to work together to assess the best opportunities for MABR technology to upgrade our treatment plants to meet the twin challenges of tightening effluent standards and to cater for population growth.

Compared to traditional wastewater treatment, MABR is a smarter way to provide aeration and a smarter way to do BNR. As a young water professional, I’m aware of the challenges my generation is going to face and I believe MABR can play a key role in helping us transition towards the more sustainable resource recovery facilities of the future.
At Island Water Technologies we are focused on providing low-energy, chemical-free solutions for decentralized wastewater treatment. OxyMem technology complements our product goals perfectly and allows us to provide robust, low-complexity wastewater treatment solutions for domestic and industrial partners.

As Global Technology Leader for Jacobs’ Wastewater Treatment Practice, I and my team are constantly on the lookout for transformative and market disruptive technologies that can assist our clients around the globe. With its simplicity of implementation and demonstrated ability to couple process intensification with energy optimization (contributing towards a pathway to energy self-sufficiency), MABR is definitely a technology that we are excited about and are actively applying.
We were amazed by OxyMem MABR’s innovative design and energy saving characteristic when we first got to know it. Based on our test of MABR unit in the past few months, we believe that MABR has the huge potential to help industrial wastewater treatment all across China. Although national effluent standards of industrial wastewater are becoming more and more stringent these days, effluent quality could be improved to meet current environmental targets, using this smart, innovative and energy efficient water treatment solution.
