Is membrane bioreactor (MBR) technology the right solution for your water reuse application? Offering a smaller footprint, smaller price tag, and high quality treatment, MBRs are a compelling solution for advanced water reuse applications. Presented in partnership with the American Membrane Technology Association (AMTA), this webcast will provide an overview of the MBR process using flat plate MBR membranes. You will learn about the types of membranes and benefits of each, operations, maintenance, and screening.
To evaluate the robustness and utility of cell assays, the Southern California Coastal Water Research Project Authority (SCCWRP) has conducted a series of laboratory and field studies. This presentation will describe SCCWRP’s work to develop performance-based protocols and apply these tools to screen water samples from various environments, including recycled water. SCCWRP’s initial work focused on the optimization and evaluation of endocrine-related cell assays, such as the estrogen receptor assay. These studies have shown that cell-based assays can successfully benchmark water of different qualities. Wastewater effluents had the highest levels of endocrine activity, while most streams and advanced treated water samples showed little to no bioactivity.
