Abstract:Cost estimates were developed for full-scale MBR reclamation systems ranging from 0.2-10 MGD. These estimates included both capital and operational costs related to the MBR process and subsequent disinfection. The costs associated with the membrane portion of the MBR systems were developed from cost quotes from four leading MBR suppliers. All other costs including headworks, biological process and disinfection costs were estimated from preliminary conceptual design. Results of the analysis showed total costs (/1000 gal) for 1-MGD MBR water reclamation systems, designed to operate on raw wastewater, ranged from 1.81-2.24. Cost estimates (/1000 gal) for 1-MGD MBR water reclamation systems designed to operate on advanced primary effluent ranged from 1.48-1.91.
