It is often the case that residential estates, municipalities or community centres (such as sports facilities) are not connected to central or semi-central wastewater treatment plants. Wastewater generated in these places is still discharged via individual multi- compartment septic tanks. This disposal route can be damaging to groundwater and so alternative solutions must be found. In addition hotels and holiday resorts in remote locations need their own facilities for wastewater treatment and ideally recycling. This paper is about a future-oriented solution for membrane wastewater treatment presenting a 500 inhabitants design concept and its investment costs. Hire is presented the MembraneClearBox® system developed from HUBER SE for small sewage treatment plants for up to 500 PE. The system combines the benefits of biological wastewater treatment and membrane filtration with submerged ultrafiltration membranes. The units consists of an aeration system and the MembraneClearBox® ultrafiltration rack with membrane modules. The number of modules is throughput-dependent. The effluent quality is so high that the treated wastewater can be used fcan reduce the drinking water demand of a household by up to 40 % ! The effluent can also be used for irrigation.
