This webcast panel provided an introduction to the basic design and operating principles of membrane bioreactors (MBRs) and tertiary membrane filtration (TMF) so that the audience would understand the components of a membrane system (cleaning systems and other ancillary equipment) and the different applications of membranes. Three speakers introduced the terminology and concepts of these technologies and discussed specific case studies related to MBRs and TMF. This event was a must see for all industry young professionals, students, and those who wanted to brush up on their membrane knowledge or gain exposure to this topic which is key in today’s water quality arena.
- Description of membrane equipment
- Criteria to design a membrane system
- Typical procurement processes
- Two case studies, one MBR and one TMF pilot
