Membrane Bioreactor (MBR) Systems

Membrane bioreactors, also know as membrane biological reactor systems or MBRs, comprise a unique wastewater treatment process designed for numerous municipal and industrial applications.  Membrane bioreactor systems may be used in such applications as water reuse, new housing developments, parks and resorts, retrofits, and turnkey projects.

MemPulse™ Membrane Biological Bioreactor

The need to recycle wastewater and stricter environmental regulations make a membrane bioreactor (MBR) system a viable solution for current and future wastewater treatment.  We make MBRs for large municipal wastewater applications that can be fit into concrete tanks, package plants for smaller flows, new developments and and hotels as well well as a system developed for the petroleum industry to meet most refinery standards.


Xpress™ Membrane Bioreactor Package Plants
Designed for applications from 25,000 gpd to 100,000 gpd,  plants utilize the immersed membrane bioreactor  process, a unique wastewater treatment process designed for municipal and industrial applications, and land developers.

MemPulse™ Membrane Bioreactor Systems
Biological processes integrated with membrane separation is one of the fastest growing technologies in the wastewater industry. These integrated MBR process solutions encompass a hybrid group of industry-leading technologies combined to meet the individual requirements of each application. Combining Envirex® biological processes, MemPulse membrane technology and SmartMBR™ Controls automation provides a reduction in energy, biosolids and footprint.

Retrofit your treatment plant with an Integrated Membrane Bioreactor Process Upgrade Solution
Existing wastewater installations can benefit from the MBR experience.  For example, a Membrane Bioreactor, paired with an Envirex Orbal® or vertical loop reactor (VLR®) oxidation system and aerated anoxic process, is designed for operators seeking activated sludge, advanced secondary sludge treatment, simultaneous nitrification-denitrification, biological phosphorus removal or stormwater treatment and reduced energy consumption.  Reengineering biological processes with a membrane bioreactor system unit can reduce footprint requirements and meet strict effluent regulations.

Membrane Bioreactor Systems Case Study

Membrane Bioractor Technology from Siemens Helps the 2008 Games go "Green"

As part of its preparation for the 2008 games, the city of Beijing, China wanted to adopt eco-friendly transportation, power generation and water management technologies. One of their goals was to process 90% of the city’s wastewater and reuse 50% of the treated effluent.
