Membrane Bioreactor as Critical Component in Wastewater Treatment

Growing necessity for efficient and cost-effective wastewater treatment systems owing to decreasing number of fresh water resources can impel demand for membrane bioreactors. Such systems can combine biologically activated sludge process and membrane filtration to offer high productivity.

Membrane Bioreactor (MBR) Market 

Anaerobic Membrane Bioreactor to Produce Methane Rich Biogas

Major product variants of membrane bioreactor (MBR) are flat sheet, hollow fiber, and multi-tubular. Hollow fiber membrane bioreactors are presumed to be dominating in the coming years owing to low operational and maintenance cost in comparison to flat sheet and multi-tubular. In addition, growing adoption of membrane bioreactors in municipal sector can also stimulate demand in the coming years. Considering the rising demand, most manufacturing companies are designing innovative MBRs to offer high productivity.

For instance, a water company based in Worcester recently designed an anaerobic membrane bioreactor system for a distillery in Scotland. It is believed to be the first ever anaerobic MBR system for whiskey industry. This MBR can use biological processes to diminish distillery wastewater output by approximately 95 percent and produce energy in the form of biogas rich in methane. Produced biogas can be utilized as fossil fuel to heat the stills used at the distillery.     

Market Insights

The global membrane bioreactor market is presumed to touch USD 8.27 billion by 2025, according to a report by Grand View Research, Inc. Rising concerns for quality of drinking water coupled with stringent government regulations on industrial discharge can drive growth of the market. Water supply shortage coupled with environmental concerns regarding industrial sludge disposal can propel growth of the market. High demand for bio-based technologies to treat industrial and sewage water is predicted to impel market growth in the coming years. Rising adoption of membrane bioreactor technology due to lower operational and maintenance cost can fuel growth of the market during the forecast period (2017 to 2025).

Some of the prominent companies operating in the market for membrane bioreactor are Kubota Corporation; Toray Industries, Inc.; Koch Membrane Systems, Inc.; GE Water & Process Technologies; and Mitsubishi Rayon Co., Ltd.
