Membranes Take Center Stage

Increasing water demand and decreasing supplies are key driving forces behind development of new treatment technologies. Membrane technology certainly takes center stage in drinking water production, and wastewater treatment and reuse. The interest in this technology is driven by the continuous advances of this technology and its ability to deliver high-quality drinking water to consumers regardless of the source.

Over the past 10 years, membrane bioreactors (MBRs) have emerged as an effective solution that can transform wastewater into high-quality effluent that can be discharged into the environment.
