Membrane Aerated Biofilm Reactor (MABR) is an innovative technology that facilitates process intensification by increasing capacity of infrastructure for nutrients removal and minimizing aeration energy. Use of gas-permeable membrane to develop nitrifiers-rich counter-diffusional biofilm is a key differentiator of MABR. This paper presents lessons learned from full-scale and pilot-scale plants.
Describe key differences between conventional co-diffusional and MABR counter-diffusional biofilm systems.
Conduct preliminary evaluation of their facilities for process intensification and resiliency needs.
Define and evaluate key performance indicators of MABR technology.
