State-of-the-art solution

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.

The new leading-edge technology, developed by Veolia Water Technologies' subsidiary Biothane, 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.

Economical and easy to operate

In addition to its performance advantages, Memthane® delivers a significant total operating costs reduction compared to conventional technologies, taking into account all elements, including membranes, chemicals, sludge disposal and overall energy savings. The simple, single, fully automated reactor system offers the possibility of remote control.

Sustainable and profitable

Memthane® opens the door to treatment of high-strength and high-solid streams found in industries like distilleries, dairies, bio-ethanol producers, instant coffee plants, etc.

The suspended free effluent also facilitates easy recovery of nutrients for fertilizer production and water recycling to the plant.

The valuable methane-rich biogas produced can cover a significant part of the production plant's energy and heat demand, which can be as high as 100% in distilleries, for example.

Due to the favorable investment and operating with robustness, clients are increasingly choosing Memthane® as their preferred wastewater treatment solution.

Memthane® treats high-strength effluents previously considered untreatable.
