Upgrades using existing assets

When discharge regulations tighten, the need for water reuse grows, or wastewater volumes increase, existing Sequencing Batch Reactor (SBR) systems often become inadequate.  In order to provide a solution with low capital cost in part by reusing existing assets, existing SBR plants can be converted to Membrane Bioreactors (MBR).  This can usually be done by adding an out-of-basin tubular ultrafilter (UF) to the process. Using a Dynatec out-of-basin UF as part of an SBR to MBR conversion is the most cost-effective and easy to implement way to:

  • Improve biological system performanceupgrades using existing assets
  • Expand capacity
  • Handle increase in strength of waste
  • Mitigate upsets
  • Reduce operator time
  • Achieve consistent performance

Dynatec has used existing assets from SBR systems to convert to an MBR at many site including at landfills, food and beverage plants, chemical manufacturing, and automotive manufacturing facilities.

The industrial MBR is the ideal bioreactor configuration for treatment of organic or inorganic contaminants present in industrial wastewaters. MBR’s operate at a higher efficiency while achieving consistent design performance objectives. This makes MBR a more cost effective method of industrial wastewater treatment when performance and tank requirements are considered.

Industrial Membrane Bioreactors Benefits:

  • Higher flux
  • Lower costs
  • Better membranes
  • Improved permeate quality
  • Less operator attention and maintenance


Dynatec’s industrial MBR is the ideal biological system for industrial wastewater treatment. It is designed to handle high strength wastewater containing high concentrations of:

  • Biochemical Oxygen Demand (BOD)
  • Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD)
  • Oil & Grease (FOG)
  • Volatiles
  • Metals
  • Ammonia
  • Nitrate
  • Inorganic

The performance is not affected by changes in sludge settleability like the conventional systems, making it the wise choice for industrial wastewater treatment systems that have difficult-to-treat waste streams. Dynatec’s MBRs can effectively handle industrial wastewater streams that would otherwise be toxic or inhibitory to other biological treatment systems.

Backed by decades of experience with MBRs, Dynatec has developed many unique process solutions necessary for industrial wastewater treatment applications such as:

  • Landfill leachate
  • Hazardous landfill leachate with metals removal
  • Automotive manufacturing wastewater
  • Food manufacturing wastewater
  • Titanium processing wastewater
