  • Membrane Bioreactors – Enviroquip MBR Systems (Retrofit)

    The Leoni Township’s wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) serves thirteen communities across three counties including the Michigan Speedway complex. A moratorium on growth was put in place until capacity and treatment issues with an aging aerated lagoon system could be addressed. In June of this year, construction of a new membrane bioreactor (MBR) ...

  • Future Perspectives in Bioreactor Development

    The paper discusses conversion capacities of both anaerobic and aerobic wastewater treatment systems in relation to growth kinetics, hydrodynamics and biomass concentration. In the current modern anaerobic high-rate reactors the conversion potentials are optimally exploited. This is not yet true for aerobic systems since operation of aerobic systems under conditions of low biomass growth reduces ...

  • Membrane Bioreactors for RO Pretreatment

    ABSTRACTCurrently, treated municipal wastewater is typically discharged to the environment in most parts of the world. It is, however, a potential water resource from which high quality water for reuse can be produced. Reuse applications include both non-potable applications such as irrigation and production of industrial process water, and indirect potable reuse including aquifer recharge. For ...

  • Membrane Bioreactor for National Park

    The problem: Assateague Island is a barrier island that stretches from the Eastern shore of Maryland down Atlantic coast to Virginia. The island is a National Park, administered by the National Park Service, under the National Seashore division. Assateague Island is a vital resting and feeding area for birds and also is home to more than 300 wild ponies. The park receives about 1 ...

  • Membrane Bioreactor for Sanitary Landfill

    The Problem The county of Warren NJ owns and operates a sanitary landfill in Oxford Twp, NJ. The facility generates an average of 50,000 gallons per day of leachate, with peaks to 100,000 gallons per day. The facility was discharging to a local POTW from their lagoon, but they were facing requirements for nitrogen removal from the POTW and needed a new system to provide ...

  • Membrane Bioreactor for Automobile Manufacturer

    Dynatec provided a system to treat wastewater from Ford's automotive assembly plant. The Problem The existing batch chemical treatment system for oil and metals removal was unable to meet the new standards for discharge to local POTW. The new requirements called for lower BOD and total Nitrogen and there was no way to make the existing system able to meet the standards. ...

  • Membrane Bioreactor for Retirement Community

    The facility: Glen Meadows is a retirement community located next to Gunpowder Falls State Park in north-central Maryland’s open country.  The community has Independent Living, Assisted Living, and Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitation facilities. The problem: The facility has grown significantly over the years. At first, a septic system ...

  • Tomato Processor Pilot Bioreactor

    98% Average Reduction in BOD & TSS A tomato processing facility was required by the city to reduce BOD from 4,000 ppm to 200 ppm. Integrated Engineers proposed a small scale Bioreactor to prove the effectiveness of the activated sludge process on the customer’s wastewater as well as establishing the parameters for a full scale system design. The trailer mounted ...

  • Selection of Bioreactor Media for Odor Control

    The support media is one of the most critical elements of a biofiltration system. In this chapter, biofilters and biotrickling filters will be referred to as “biofilter”, and this distinction will be discussed later in this chapter. The support media’s main function is to provide contact between the gas-phase contaminants and active microbial cultures either immobilized within and/or attached as ...

  • Start-up of membrane bioreactor and hybrid moving bed biofilm reactor–membrane bioreactor: kinetic study

    A hybrid moving bed biofilm reactor–membrane bioreactor (hybrid MBBR-MBR) system was studied as an alternative solution to conventional activated sludge processes and membrane bioreactors. This paper shows the results obtained from three laboratory-scale wastewater treatment plants working in parallel in the start-up and steady states. The first wastewater treatment plant was a MBR, the second ...

  • Maximizing bioreactor performance - Case Study

    Paul Sauer, Associate Scientist of Protein Design Lab's Cell Culture Development Group, had two compelling reasons for specifying mass flow controllers for his work: The first was the need to acquire an array of data that would allow them to more effectively control fermentation processes; The second was the need to minimize the formation of foam in the bioreactor's headspace. To minimize foam, ...

  • Investigation of long-term operation and biomass activity in a membrane bioreactor system

    The aim of this work was to evaluate the long-term performance of a Membrane Bioreactor (MBR) that operated continuously for 2.5 years and to assess membrane fouling and biomass activity under various operating conditions. Furthermore, a method for the characterisation of influent wastewater was developed based on its separation into various fractions. The MBR system operated at the solids ...

  • Performance of pilot submerged membrane bioreactor treatment systems in girdwood, Alaska

    ABSTRACT The Anchorage Water and Wastewater Utility (AWWU) has conducted pilot testing of an Enviroquip submerged membrane bioreactor (SMBR) and a ZENON SMBR at the Girdwood Wastewater Treatment Facility (GWWTF) located in Girdwood, Alaska. The Girdwood wastewater is unique relative to other municipal wastewaters in that it is dilute, weak and typically low-temperature. This paper summarizes ...

  • A knowledge-based control system for air-scour optimisation in membrane bioreactors

    Although membrane bioreactors (MBRs) technology is still a growing sector, its progressive implementation all over the world, together with great technical achievements, has allowed it to reach a mature degree, just comparable to other more conventional wastewater treatment technologies. With current energy requirements around 0.6–1.1 kWh/m3 of treated wastewater and investment costs similar to ...

  • Mass Flow Control in Bioreactors - Case study

    Vogtlin mass flow controllers are an excellent tool for precise control of gas flows in bioreactors. Bio reactors are used for critical and delicate processes where mass flow control of relevant gases need to be reliable, repeatable and flexible. For example, the dissolved oxygen needs to be carefully controlled to obtain repeatable pH control and volumes of fermentation gases like CO and H2 ...
