23.04.2024 Ι Cerafiltec, a global player in ceramic flat membrane (CFM) technology, has achieved a milestone by securing four Membrane Bioreactor (MBR) projects with a combined capacity of 13.7 MLD in February and March 2024.

This achievement underscores the growing demand for robust membrane solutions across a spectrum of water and wastewater treatment applications. Particularly when dealing with MBR projects, challenges like sludge clogging and fiber breakages can impact budgets and operations heavily. The reliability, robustness, and cost-effectiveness of Cerafiltec’s technology were key factors in the decision to choose Cerafiltec.

Located in Italy, Mexico, the UAE, and Africa, the projects range from a 250 m³/d industrial MBR to a 10,000 m³/d municipal MBR. All projects are on fast track and with immediate to short term shipment dates.

Upgrading to ceramic MBR

These projects involve replacing polymeric membranes – hollow fiber and flat sheet – with Cerafiltec’s ceramic flat membrane (CFM) technology and upgrading conventional systems to ceramic MBRs. This shift highlights the industry’s movement towards more robust and reliable water treatment technologies, unlocking total cost of ownership benefits.

A key reason for choosing ceramic membranes over polymeric membranes in industrial MBRs is to overcome fiber breakages and operational challenges, specifically for water re-use. For municipal MBRs, the decision is driven by the lower total cost of ownership offered by the durable ceramic membranes along with ease of maintenance.

More efficient maintenance process

To all projects, the operational flexibility, which ceramic flat membranes offer, is a significant advantage. Especially their ability to be chemically cleaned without the typical limitations associated with polymeric membranes drives strong market appetite and value for the operators. This ensures a more efficient maintenance process and reliable operations – all positively impacting operational costs.

”The successful acquisition of these projects is a clear indicator of the global market’s growing appreciation for the advantages of ceramic flat membranes,” said Kay Gunther Gabriel, Chief Technology Officer.

 

“System integrators and end users are increasingly recognizing the value of solutions that offer extended lifetimes and reduced maintenance, leading to a superior total cost of ownership. As Cerafiltec continues to pioneer advancements in water and wastewater treatment, these achievements underscore our commitment to driving progress and innovation toward ensuring clean water access for everyone,” he added.
