MBR – Membrane Bio Reactor

“A membrane reactor is a piece of chemical equipment that combines a catalyst-filled reaction chamber with a membrane to add reactants or remove products of the reaction.

Chemical reactors making use of membranes are usually referred to as membrane reactors. The membrane can be used for different tasks:

  • Separation
  • Selective extraction of reactants
  • Retention of the catalyst
  • Distribution/dosing of a reactant
  • Catalyst support (often combined with distribution of reactants)

Membrane reactors are an example for the combination of two unit operations in one step e.g. membrane filtration with the chemical reaction.”

Membrane filtration is already successfully in use for waste water treatment. Due to improved membranes and because of decreased investment and operation costs, it is an attractive option for municipal systems, especially if expanding an already existing plant is necessary or if space is limited.

Competence since 1992

Since 1992 the process engineers of EnviCare® Engineering GmbH have been intensively working on further development of this technology. We provide an extensive knowlegde in conception, planning, construction and operation of membrane waste water treatment plants.
