Dear SWA Members & Partners,

Singapore Water Association will be organising a 2-day Training, Design & Operate Membrane Bioreactor (MBR) Plant.

Course objectives
This course provides fundamental knowledge in applying Membrane Bio-reactor (MBR) technology in water reclamation. It covers the concepts of MBR technology including its process design and its system components. It also includes the process fundamentals of MBR technology and the MBR membranes used in the technology. 

Learning outcome
This course provides learners with the opportunity to apply, demonstrate and practise the knowledge and skills learnt, to determine the design basis for the MBR system, analyse the operating data and apply MBR technology in design and engineering through classroom sessions and site visits.

Target audience
The 2-day course is intended for engineers, plant operators and water treatment professionals. It provides information on MBR processes, engineering details and focuses on optimizing MBR operation for water reclamation. The course is also suitable for professionals that work in the area of upgrading and expansion of existing water and wastewater facilities or the design of new facilities.
