EcoRight™ Membrane Bioreactor (MBR) SystemSource: Siemens Industry, Inc. - Water Technologies
The EcoRight™ biological treatment system is a next generation carbon-assisted biological treatment system incorporating the use of granular activated carbon (GAC) in the aeration tank(s). GAC is retained in the aeration tanks via screening, isolating the GAC from the membrane filtration section of the biological treatment plant. By retaining the activated carbon in the aeration section, carbon consumption costs are minimized through biological regeneration of the GAC. Effluent quality is significantly improved with the use of activated carbon. In many cases, the EcoRight system effluent can be fed directly to a water reuse technology such as an RO system or multi-effect evaporator.
Specifically designed to meet the needs of the Oil & Gas Industry, the EcoRight MBR is able to meet increasingly strict effluent requirements and offer economical reuse of water and wastewater through a combination of biological treatment and carbon adsorption.
Features and Benefits
Siemens has a wide range of application experience in the Oil & Gas Industry, in addition to a large installed base of technologies and the ability to offer supporting technologies for an EcoRight™ system plant.
EcoRight MBR systems offer:
- reduced footprint requirements compared to conventional biological treatment + GAC
- reduced waste disposal
- lower CAPEX and OPEX compared to conventional biological treatment + activated carbon filtration
- water sustainability/reuse technology
