This project aims to demonstrate the effectiveness of Meiden's used water processing system by combining the use of the Upflow Anaerobic Sludge Blanket (UASB) technology and Meiden's Ceramic Membrane MBR system in achieving energy savings and a consistent high-quality outputof recycled water.
The increased utilization of anaerobic wastewater treatment systems has been associated with the development of high-rate reactors such as the anaerobic filter (AF), the downflow stationary fixed-film (DSFF) reactor, the upflow anaerobic sludge blanket (UASB) reactor, the fluidized-bed (FB) reactor, and the expanded-bed (EB) reactor, which are widely used in municipal and industrial wastewater treatment (Shivayogimath & Ramanujam, 1999; Tay & Zhang, 2000).
