Wastewater Solutions

At MANN+HUMMEL Water & Membrane Solutions, we provide innovative solutions for advanced wastewater treatment and sustainable water management. In an era where efficient wastewater treatment and water reuse are paramount, particularly in regions facing water scarcity, we leverage cutting-edge membrane technology to meet these challenges while safeguarding the environment. In addition, membrane filtration provides a physical barrier for bacteria, genes and microplastics. In combination with additional processes as powdered activated carbon, membrane filtration exceeds the requirements for the so called fourth treatment stage for micropollutant removal.

Our  BIO‑CEL Membrane Bioreactor modules exemplify our commitment. Featuring a flexible innovative membrane design, these immersed modules offer resilience, ease of maintenance, and exceptional capabilities for the retention of bacteria, solids, and particulate matter. Our membrane filtration solutions are making a significant impact globally, particularly in water-scarce regions, where they seamlessly integrate with biological wastewater treatment and decrease the overall footprint compared to conventional systems by 30 to 40 %. The treated water emerges as a precious resource for plant irrigation and agricultural fields, directly addressing pressing water scarcity challenges. Our low fouling, back washable spiral wound element design of iSep membranes enable us to operate on some of the most challenging water and wastewater streams.

Our membrane filtration solutions cater to various sectors, including municipal sewage treatment, secondary and tertiary filtration, peak flow management and various industrial applications including textile industry, food and beverage production wastewater treatment, down to petrochemical applications.

Main Markets

Industrial Wastewater Treatment

Industrial Wastewater Treatment

Wastewater is potentially an affordable and sustainable source of water and energy, while by-products recovery, treatment and reuse represent a long-term solution to water scarcity. 

MANN+HUMMEL offers a wide portfolio of solutions to respond to the increasing challenges in industrial wastewater treatment and reduce effluent discharge, increase wastewater reuse and recover of salts and by-products that can be reused in different industrial processes.

Municipal Wastewater Treatment

Municipal Wastewater Treatment

Existing wastewater treatment plants (WWTP) are not meeting the needed capacity demands and the increasing effluent quality requirements for water reuse anymore.

Our BIO-CEL range offers a modular and compact process step to increase the capacity of a wastewater treatment plant, and remove antimicrobial-resistant bacteria, micropollutants, nutrients and microplastic reaching highest effluent quality when operated in combination with Activated Carbon.


Decentralized Wastewater Treatment

Decentralized wastewater treatment is needed in all remote areas that are not connected to main wastewater treatment facilities, such as smaller towns and villages as well as malls, motels or worker camps.

Membrane bioreactors can be integrated in small modular systems and provide high quality water with minimum space requirements.
