The MBR Short Course (1 Day)

This course can be delivered at your location as a one-day crash course or as a more in-depth two-day course. It can also be combined with other courses to provide a comprehensive course on advanced wastewater treatment and reuse.

This course provides comprehensive, up-to-date information on the design and operational aspects of MBR technology and its applications. The course includes hard data from commercial technologies and actual reference sites. It is aimed at a broad section of stakeholders, including end users, consultants, contractors, regulators, technology providers and researchers in wastewater treatment technology for both industrial and municipal effluents.

What is Covered?

The one-day course covers the following subject areas and topics:

  • Industrial effluent treatment using MBRs
  • Municipal wastewater treatment using MBRs
  • Comparative costs with conventional treatment
  • Membrane separation process fundamentals
  • MBR membrane technology configurations
  • MBR process design
  • MBR operation and maintenance
  • Commercial MBR membrane products and process technologies
  • Case studies.

Course Outcomes

At the end of the course the delegates will be able to understand and appreciate:

  • the market position of MBR technology
  • the fundamentals and governing principles of membrane separation processes
  • the fundamentals and governing principles of biological treatment, as it relates to MBRs
  • the key technical constituents of the MBR process treatment scheme, and their specifications
  • the constituent costs of the process, and their comparison with conventional treatment
  • the extent of the commercial MBR membrane technologies
  • the extent of the implementation of the technology as pertaining to key example municipal and industrial installations, and
  • perform basic calculations relating to MBR process design.

The one-day course excludes all tutorials and assignments that are delivered in the two-day MBR Crash course.
