LEAPmbr* wastewater membrane bioreactor

The most advanced MBR solution on the market, LEAPmbr uses our leading ZeeWeed* membrane to help you increase your productivity, reduce your footprint for lower construction costs, simplify your design through streamlined equipment and controls and achieve significant energy savings.

Removal of heavy metals from wastewater

Metals in waste streams don't naturally degrade, and even at low concentrations are toxic to aquatic life. Our effluent treatment programs for industrial facility operators remove soluble and particulate heavy metals, such as lead, copper, chromium, iron, manganese, mercury, nickel and zinc, helping you ensure regulatory compliance and minimise environmental harm.
