Development of a woven fabric immersed membrane bioreactor (WFIMBR) package plant for decentralized sanitation
Expanded Title:The overall aim of this project was to develop and demonstrate the woven fabric immersed membrane bioreactor (WFIMBR) as a technology for small-scale and decentralised sanitation. The specific objectives of this project were: (i) To develop a 10-person equivalent (p.e.) package plant sanitation unit based on the novel woven fabric immersed membrane bioreactor technology (WFIMBR). (ii) To investigate the optimisation of the unit in terms of energy usage, simplicity of construction, simplicity of operation, and robustness. (iii) To develop a 30 p.e. unit based on the optimized geometry and operating conditions. (iv) To demonstrate the 30 p.e. product to relevant stakeholders, including wastewater treatment practitioners, municipalities, vendors of systems, etc., so as to accelerate the implementation of IMBR wastewater treatment package plants in South Africa.
