Details:An Innovative membrane-aerated biofilm reactor (MABR) technology, ZeeLungTM, was piloted at the MWRD's OBrien Water Reclamation Plant for a year to evaluate the applicability of this system in providing much smaller tank volume than that required by conventional activated sludge (CAS) for nitrification, thereby effectively expanding the capacity of the existing aeration tanks to institute an anaerobic zone for Enhanced Biological Phosphorus Removal (EBPR,) without the need to construct additional infrastructure.  There are additional benefits of using such system in terms of  saving energy for aeration of the Activated Sludge Plant that makes ZeeLung more attractive to the industry.
