Market-Leading Wastewater Treatment Technologies
At Fluence, our engineers have developed some of the most efficient and cost-effective wastewater treatment technologies on the market. Here are a few of our latest innovations in wastewater.
Membrane Aerated Biofilm Reactors (MABR)
Our best-in-class membrane aerated biofilm reactor (MABR) technology provides the most advanced class 1A-quality wastewater treatment in the industry, with power consumption up to 90% less than with traditional methods of aeration. Fluence's MABR technology allows for simultaneous nitrification-denitrification and uses passive aeration, which is much more energy-efficient than the compressed-air aeration used in conventional treatment.
At Fluence, our latest anaerobic digestion innovation has focused on anaerobic MBR, a combination of anaerobic digestion and membrane bioreactor technology, which concentrates solid digestate without the use of centrifuges or dissolved air flotation (DAF). This new application:
- Can process a higher organic load than traditional technologies
- Reduces the volume required for digesters
- Provides better quality effluents
- Uses less polyelectrolyte
- Can be used to upgrade existing facilities
Fluence has decades of experience in the delivery of cost-effective, reliable, state-of-the-art aeration and mixing solutions. Our line of aerators and mixers is one of the most comprehensive in the industry. Our SMARTAERATOR™ system is a highly innovative control system for new or existing aerators. It's easy to implement, efficient, and cost-effective, reducing power consumption significantly.
Featured Wastewater Treatment Case Studies
When a residential development in Israel wanted a localized wastewater treatment solution to replace its existing pond system, it needed an odorless, quiet solution that would be energy-efficient, handle a high-nutrient stream, and use existing pond structures. The plant uses our revolutionary membrane aerated biofilm reactor (MABR) technology to treat 123,000 L/d, producing high-quality, reclaimed water suitable for agricultural reuse.
Dealing With High-COD Slaughterhouse Waste
When a leading Italian food processor wanted to improve its wastewater treatment and lower sludge-disposal costs, anaerobic digestion and nitrification-denitrification were added to its treatment train to deal with COD-heavy slaughterhouse wastewater.
When replacing a wastewater treatment plant serving two communities in Nevada, uneven terrain made a conventional circular clarifier impossible. Modular tanks were custom-arranged to accommodate aeration and sludge-holding. Tanks were installed incrementally, which allowed the plant to handle a seasonal increase in wastewater flow due to an annual festival.
