At the current time Membrane Bioreactors (MBR) are the primary focus of wastewater treatment technologies. MBR is a combination of biological activated sludge process for the removal of nutrients and a membrane filtration for separation of biomass and treated water. In industrial wastewatertreatment such as RV waste MBRs have proven to be a particularly reliable technique. A pilot study was conducted at Kitsap Memorial State Park during the summer of 2008, with the goal of understanding the efficacy of a membrane bioreactor (MBR) system in treating high strength recreational vehicle (RV) wastewater. Chemical and biochemical are added to recreational vehicle (RV) black water holding tanks to control the odor and the biological activity which produce odors.
