During a recent visit to one of our MBR installations I realised that the local residents were checking our every move. I guess they were pretty happy with the installation and operation of the MBR systems including the patio that provides shelter and protection for the local Kookabura population.

While membrane-based separations of liquids from solids have enjoyed increasing popularity over the last twenty years, the technology has an inherent challenge that affects all membrane devices: fouling. This long-term loss in throughput capacity is due primarily to the formation of a boundary layer that builds up naturally on the membranes surface during the filtration process. In addition to cutting down on the flux performance of the membrane, this boundary or gel layer acts as a secondary membrane reducing the native design selectivity of the membrane in use. This inability to handle the buildup of solids has also limited the use of membranes to low-solids feed streams.

There is a great deal of effort being made by many different companies in the water processing industry in an attempt at Zero Liquid Discharge (ZLD), Brine Crystalisation, Brine Concentration and Brine Minimisation.
Syngineering Water has been developing , using a combination of several different water treatment technologies, has been able to match and often exceed many of the outrageous claims being made regarding these innovative technologies. The Syngineering Brine Concentrater is centred on the VSEP technology in combination with several other technologies to provide excellent results.

Not much has changed in the 8,000years mankind
has been producing wine. However in terms of the
environment, everything is about to change for the
better. While many wine companies worldwide
are attempting to “go green”, one large winery in
northwest California has become the first on the
planet to successfully pilot the innovative VSEP
barrel rinse water treatment system to save water
and drastically reduce their carbon footprint.
Presentation presented at Wasteminz by Chris Lobb from Envirowaste NZ comparing and contrasting the different options available to Environwaste for treating the landfill leachate and why Envirowaste selected VSEP from Syngineering Water as their preferred technology.
Dairy products are enjoyed all over the world and are a diet staple for many people. With the growing demand for dairy products such as Greek yogurt, the handling of the increase in waste byproducts is a growing concern. Whey is a byproduct that cannot be discharged to surface water or land applied due to the COD and BOD that are an environmental hazard to agriculture and aquatic wildlife. Normal dairy production plant wastewater is in the range of 2000 to 3000mg/L BOD which is 10 times the strength of domestic sewage . The amount of whey produced from the original product can be 90%  for cheese and up to 75% for Greek yogurt. The current uses for whey are limited and alternative treatments are necessary.
Provided you are not directly adjacent to a saltwater disposal point, RO brine disposal is problematic and expensive. Brine concentration in traditional reverse osmosis membrane systems is limited by the amount of silica in the feed water. VSEP’s vibratory oscillation prevents silica fouling, and thus VSEP is ultimately limited by osmotic pressure, not silica. Because of this unique capability, VSEP from Syngineering Water has become the market leader in non-thermal brine minimisation.
Syngineering Water have now completed the design of the Waste Water Treatment plant in late 2015. Installation and commissioning has been extremely successful given the level of detail planning at the design phase. Well done to the design team who worked tirelessly to deliver a start of the art leachate treatment plant.

Landfill Leachate generation is a major problem for municipal solid waste landfills and causes a significant threat to surface water and groundwater. Leachate can be defined as a liquid that passes through a landfill and has extracted dissolved and suspended matter from the landfill. Leachate is the typically stored in ponds and treated. The treated leachate can then be either released One of the most effective methods for treating landfill leachate has been found to be the VSEP systems either as a stand VSEP system or in combination with Reverse Osmosis available from Syngineering Water. This treatment system will produce permeate that can then be either released into water ways or used as on site dust suppression.
