The MABR Technology
The Emefcy MABR is a modular decentralized wastewater treatment process, using 90% less energy than conventional technologies; it is a simple, low cost, modular and scalable solution for small wastewater treatment plants. The Emefcy MABR is based on spirally wound respiring membranes which provide oxygen to the process and support the growth of a nitrifying biofilm. Through integrated simultaneous nitrification and de-nitrification, it produces high quality effluent with less operational attention than any similarly performing process.
The EBR Technology
Electrogenic Bio Reactors (EBR) for wastewater treatment area futuristic wastewater treatment process. They are based on three components new to this field: Anaerobic Anodes where bacterial oxidation of organic matter occurs; Air cathodeswhere the corresponding oxygen reduction reaction takes place; And an electric circuit connecting the anodes to the cathodes through a control circuit. As a result of the unique bio-electro-chemical process in the EBR, an electric current is produced rather than the energy consumed in conventional treatment methods.
The Emefcy production facility in Or Akiva, Israel, is based on roll-to-roll processing of raw materials – membranes and spacers, into spirals that are then packed into customized tanks, to create a finished product. It is also equipped with supporting processing equipment for efficient manufacturing, as well as QA facilities to ensure each finished product unit is up to spec.
