Memthane® (AnMBR)

The preferred solution for high-strength wastewaters resulting in crystal clear effluents
The way in which the reactor is mixed and the preferential removal of organic solids
optimize performance and are unique to the Memthane® technology.

Memthane® is an Anaerobic Membrane Bio-Reactor (AnMBR) which maximizes renewable energy production while producing superb quality effluent that can be reused or discharged directly to sewer.

Memthane® is ideal for high-strength and high-solid waste streams from industries such as distilleries, dairies, bio-ethanol producers, and many other food and beverage production facilities. The effluent is free of suspended solids to facilitate recovery of nutrients for fertilizer production and/or water recycling to the plant. The valuable methane-rich biogas produced can be sent to a Veolia-supplied Combined Heat and Power (CHP) unit to generate electricity for plant operations. In some applications, 100% of the production facility’s energy requirements can be achieved.

Memthane® delivers a unique, small footprint solution that offers an array of benefits, reducing disposal costs while generating valuable biogas. Replacing fossil fuels by generating biogas from wastewater treatment.
