Bioreactor filtration system treats waste water to highest standards

For residential and commercial building projects looking to save water, a wastewater treatment system delivers water clean enough to be discharged into waterways or used for other purposes.

At the 2015 International Builders' Show, Bio-MicrobicsCEO Bob Rebori reviewed the company's BioBarrier Membrane BioReactors (MBRs). The MBR is a wastewater treatment system that uses a membrane process of microfiltration/ultrafiltration with a suspended growth bioreactor. Rebori noted it is the first system to achieve NSF/ANSI 40 (onsite wastewater), 245 (nitrogen reduction), and 350 (water reuse) certification. It's in use in a wide variety of applications for residential and larger commercial buildings

When used with Bio-Microbics' SaniTEE Effluent Screening Device, the BioBarrier MBR system can produce effluent of high quality enough to be discharged to coastal, surface or brackish waterways or to be reclaimed for urban irrigation.  Other advantages of MBRs over conventional processes include small footprint, easy retrofit and upgrade of old wastewater treatment plants.

Rebori noted that certification to the new NSF/ANSI 350 satisfies requirements for leading green building programs, including USGBC LEED Water Efficiency credit for graywater reuse systems. Products certified to the NSF/ANSI 350, also could satisfy gray water use strategies under the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) National Green Building Certification program as an innovative practice.
