The article introduces the packaged membrane bioreactor (MBR) systems of Koch Membrane Systems Inc. It notes that the pre-engineered systems produce high-quality effluent while lessening the treatment system footprint, installation costs and manpower commitment for small wastewater treatment plants. The packaged MBR systems incorporate membrane filtration and bioreactor processes into a turnkey solution for new and retrofit wastewater treatment plants using PURON submerged membrane technology.
