Technology Strengths, Weaknesses and Critical Indicators

Ultra-Filtration (UF) Membrane Based Nutrient Removal technologies can be used to reduce both suspended and dissolved solids depending on location specific requirements:

  • Produces low nutrient irrigation water and marketable products when paired with other technologies
  • Always produce a stream leaving membrane and stream rejected by membrane
  • Membranes of various size: Micro-filtration, Ultra-Filtration and Nano-Filtration each allowing various sized particles through the membrane
  • Depending on the membrane, effective pre-treatment to remove coarse, fibrous solids as well as fine suspended solids are important to system viability and reliability
  • Membrane failure and high pressure/energy costs can be a concern
  • Proven technology for nitrogen recovery, phosphorous recovery, and pathogen reduction.

Newtrient Comments/Opinions:

Membrane Based Nutrient Removal technologies:

  • Produces recycled water and marketable products when paired with other technologies
  • Always produce a stream leaving membrane and stream rejected by membrane
  • Membranes of various size: Microfiltration, Ultrafiltration and Reverse Osmosis—each allowing various sized particles through the membrane
  • Reverse Osmosis required to remove salts and achieve water suitable for discharge
  • Effective pre-treatment to remove coarse, fibrous solids as well as fine suspended solids are important to system viability and reliability
  • Membrane failure and high pressure/energy costs can be a concern
  Aqua Innovations is currently operating their system on a dairy site in the Northwest and will soon be live with other projects in the Midwest. Newtrient will continue to work with Aqua Innovations to further refine the cost and performance information as more information comes in with new commercial dairy installations. Newtrient has not assigned a 9-Point score at this time.
