Membrane Technology Generates Renewable Energy from Wastewater
GE has combined anaerobic digestion technology with its ZeeWeed 500 wastewater treatment membranes to create the anaerobic membrane bioreactor (AnMBR).
AbMBR generates renewable energy from industrial wastewater.
According to GE, the AnMBR provides reduced energy consumption, energy recovery and reduced sludge production. It solves the issues associated with traditional anaerobic process by separating solids retention time from hydraulic retention time. Methanogens are retained in the anaerobic reactor, increasing methane production with no suspended solids passing through. The quality of the liquid waste is also improved.
