Memthane® combines two proven technologies: Biothane's anaerobic biological wastewater treatment and Pentair's X-Flow ultrafiltration membrane separation process.
Anaerobic biological treatment
Anaerobic treatment is the proven and energy efficient method to convert industrial wastewater into biogas. Low energy requirements, a smaller reactor footprint, lower chemical usage and reduced sludge handling costs are among the technology's advantages.
Biogas produced through anaerobic treatment can make the plant energy neutral or even a renewable energy producer.
Membrane separation (UF)
The ultrafiltration membrane unit provides a solution that is robust, reliable and flexible.
Memthane® minimizes the surplus sludge production by applying long sludge retention times. The membranes are placed outside the reactor, offering a simple and easily maintainable stand-alone system that is fully enclosed, preventing odor release.
