Membrane Bioreactor (MBR Systems)

Membrane Bioreactors

bioprocessH2O Membrane Bioreactors (MBR) are biological wastewater treatment systems that discharge high-quality effluent suitable for compliance, regulations, and water reuse. Installing a Membrane Bioreactor will provide your business with a competitive advantage by giving you the capability to discharge into waterways or repurpose for reuse. Check out how our MBR systems address our client's needs at the bottom of the page! 

How do MBBRs work?

MBBR systems consist of large water tanks. Inside these tanks are wastewater and biofilm media carriers. The media provides a protected surface area for the acclimation of bacteria. The bacteria that grow on the media help break down elements of the wastewater. Made of high-density polyethylene, our media carriers have an effective life of over fifteen years. The microorganisms breakdown the wastewater. These microorganisms are then sloughed off of the media and are discharged with the treated water. MBBR systems are ideal for the pretreatment of wastewater streams that contain organics.

MBR Past Project: Peak BOD: 13,000mg/L Reduced to: <30mg/L


Sweetners Plus

Project: bioFLOW Ultrafiltration (UF) MBR process for a Liquid & Dry Sweetener Manufacturer 

Industry: Food & Beverage Facility


  • Biochemical Oxygen Demand (BOD) Removal
  • Total Suspended Solids (TSS) Removal
  • Water Reuse
  • Application Parameters:
Sweetners Plus Design Critera

Problem: The Sweeteners Plus Facility was experiencing high concentrations of soluble BOD and needed a robust wastewater treatment system to achieve compliance with the local municipality and water reuse for truck washing.

Solution: bioprocessH2O supplied a bioFLOW UF (Ultrafiltration) Membrane Bioreactor (MBR) wastewater recycling system sized and designed for the treatment of the facilities process water. A filtered water storage tank was provided to collect the UF permeate from the bioFLOW MBR System for water reuse or overflow to the municipal sewer.

Status/Results: The bioFLOW UF MBR System effectively reduces the BOD and TSS levels down to regulatory standards and effluent requirements for water reuse and/or discharge to the sewer drain.

Our MBR systems provide cost-effective, easy to operate technology with minimal maintenance for your wastewater and water reuse needs. For more information on our Membrane bioreactor wastewater treatment plant please check out our past projects.
