COST COMPARISON FOR APPLICATION OF MBR AND CAS/MF FACILITIES
Membrane bioreactor (MBR) technology is becoming more cost competitive at larger design flows. As a result, more utilities are facing the decision of whether to select MBR or conventional activated sludge with microfiltration (CAS/MF) to provide higher quality effluent. This analysis provides estimated capital, operation and maintenance (O&M), and present worth cost comparison of MBR to CAS/MF for new construction at 2, 4, and 8 mgd. The CAS/MF alternative had consistently lower capital and operation and maintenance costs than the MBR. CAS/MF did, however, require three times more site space for the facilities analyzed.
