Thanks to their falling prices, small footprint, technical performance, and potential for automation, membrane bioreactors (MBRs) are an attractive technology for wastewater treatment. Glen T. Daigger with CH2M HILL, Bruce E. Rittmann from Arizona State University, Samer Adham at Montgomery Watson Harza, and Gianni Andreottola of the University of Trento (Italy) outline the process a group of experts followed to reach their conclusions on whether MBRs are ready for sustainable, decentralized sanitation in both developed and developing countries.
