Commercial Membrane Biological Reactor: Application and Benefits


The Commercial Membrane Biological Reactor Wastewater Treatment Plant (MBR WwTP) is the leading-edge technology for domestic and commercial sewage wastewater treatment. MBR Wastewater treatment plants produce very high quality treated effluent. No other wastewater technology currently comes close.

This technology is now affordable for commercial wastewater treatment applications.

An MBR WwTP is also very suitable for applications where it is desirable to re-cycle some of the treated effluent for non-potable applications.

For applications, requiring very high quality re-cycled water, an Reverse Osmosis polishing stage can be easily added after the MBR.

My range of MBR Wastewater Treatment Plants are designed for commercial applications.

Typical applications are for small communities, such as villages, schools, camping grounds, etc.; on rainwater supply where it is desirable to provide a local wastewater treatment facility to treat the wastewater produced and re-cycle some of the treated water for the community’s non-potable water needs, such as irrigation and toilet flush water.


CMWEL designs are based on 23KL Concrete, or 25KL & 30KL PE water tanks, which allow for:

  • (i) Open ended design, allowing the wastewater treatment plant solution to be sized for each
    individual application.
  • (ii) Allows for easy future design modifications, to cater for future flow, and/or raw wastewater
    strength changes.
  • (iii) Tank selection to suit buried, (concrete), partially buried, (concrete or PE) and restricted
    heavy load access applications, (PE).
  • (iv) Sealed tanks allowing for the carbon filter treatment of odious gas and spent air
    discharges to atmosphere.

System Specifications

  • Tanks
    Concrete: 60KPA, (minimum), concrete with microsilica addition to the concrete to make it more
    resistant to chemical attack.PE: Insulated PE Water Tanks used for the MBR Process Tanks.
  • Fully Automatic
    PLC controller with audible, visual and optional remote alarm facilities.
  • 24VDC Actuated Valves for safe operation.

The above schematic shows the smallest CMWEL Commercial MBR WwTP offered.

For larger capacity WwTPs, extra tanks are added as needed to cater for the increased process tankage requirements.
