Hybrid-Membrane Technology Selected for California Water Reuse Projects
The facilities will reduce the overall load on the collection system
Anaergia Inc. announced that the Victor Valley Wastewater Reclamation Authority (VVWRA) has selected FibrePlate hybrid-membrane technology for two sub-regional membrane bioreactor (MBR) facilities. The MBR facilities will be located in high growth areas of the service region and produce a combined two million gal per day of high quality effluent for landscape irrigation.
In addition to providing a drought-proof supply of water, the sub-regional MBR facilities will reduce the overall load on the collection system, enabling VVWRA to defer costly infrastructure expansion and reduce the energy costs associated with pumping recycled water.
“This is a critical project that will help to ensure the future sustainability and economic prosperity of our communities,” said Logan Olds, general manager of Victor Valley Wastewater Reclamation Authority. “We have a proven track record of employing best-in-class technologies to help solve critical wastewater infrastructure challenges. FibrePlate represents a new generation of membrane technology that offers unique operational efficiencies including future capacity expansion capabilities for the VVWRA.”
Compared to conventional water reuse processes, the MBR facilities will have a small footprint and each facility will be architecturally designed to blend with the local community. The FibrePlate membrane technology system will provide a positive, ultrafiltration barrier that will ensure a reliable, high quality reuse effluent at all times.
