Technical information

Newterra’s MBR/C technology addresses a wide range of wastewater treatment applications where high quality effluent is required, either to meet regulatory requirements or for reuse.  MBR/C targets Biological Oxygen Demand (BOD), Total Suspended Solids (TSS), Bacteria, Total Coliforms, Ammonia, Nitrogen, and Phosphorus.

The MBR/C also eliminate many pharmaceuticals from the waste stream, which is a growing concern for natural habitats and drinking water. With extensive experience with groundwater remediation, Newterra can bring solutions for emerging contaminant challenges such as PFAS and other compounds that may be present in the system effluent.

Discharge Targets (Typical Base Design)
Biological Oxygen Demand (BOD) <5.0 mg/L
Total Suspended Solids (TSS)         <5.0 mg/L
Ammonia-N                                        <1.0 mg/L
Turbidity                                               <0.5 NTU
Total Phosphorus                               <0.1 mg/L
Total Nitrogen                                     <5.0 mg/L

Enhanced Nutrient Removal Design can achieve lower effluent results:

Total Phosphorus                               <0.05 mg/L
Total Nitrogen                                     <3.0 mg/L

The ultimate process configuration is highly dependent on:

    • influent concentrations
    • variability in feed strength and flow
    • desired effluent criteria depending on the ultimate receiver
    • space available
    • budget available
    • climate considerations
    • shipping contraints
    • power available
