DETAIL DESCRIPTION

TERI has successfully demonstrated the use of ceramic membrane filters in submerged membrane bioreactors (MBRs) for sewage treatment. These filters are made from fly ash and are considerably cheaper than commercially available membranes. This is a decentralized system that allows for industrial wastewater to be treated for re-use on site, thus resulting in water use efficiency.
