Package Plants

Package or Modular plants are the ideal answer for smaller, stranded communities. They save land for improvements by not requiring septic fields.

Plants can be placed close to clusters of homes, shortening collection lines and eliminating the biggest issue with present day sewage treatment – broken, leaking pipes. And they are innocuous – compact units that can be partially buried at the bottom of a slope.

Plus, they erase one of the biggest impediments to residential and resort development – wastewater treatment for a concentration of people. Package plants can also be configured to handle brewery pre-treatment and industrial waste of all kinds.

We offer three standard sizes (but modifications are available):

MBR Container 10 WWT

MBR – 10:

  • 6,000 gals./day
  • Suitable for campgrounds, small hotels, mobile home or RV parks
  • 75 – 100 people (10′ long WWTS container)
MBR Container 20 WWT

MBR – 20:

  • 21,000 gals./day
  • Suitable for small housing developments, medium sized hotels or apartment buildings, special event facilities.
  • 250 – 400 people (20′ long WWTS container)
MBR Container 40 WWT

MBR – 40:

  • 42,000 gals./day
  • Suitable for larger housing developments, large hotel, and apartment or condominium complexes.
  • 500 – 800 people (40′ long WWTS container)

Plants can all be modified to incorporate larger holding tanks, in case of seasonal surges; stainless steel tanks for almost unlimited life; and backup microgrid power systems, which is highly recommended – photovoltaic, generator, or wind turbine. Multiple plants can be utilized in larger developments to handle much larger numbers of people.

All plants come standard with these features:



A structure of fine membrane filtration media that remove bacteria and suspended solids down to 0.1 micron in size. And with our low pressure “push” and regular backwashing, the membrane racks perform better and last far longer.



Major process train components – pumps and control valves – are duplicated to allow continuous, automated, system operation.


(Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) System

Sensors and communications components that provide remote supervision, diagnostic, and control capabilities. Manage your system with a smart phone or computer.

Major Benefits:

  • With just one hydraulically-driven tank, no ancillary sub-system pumps, clarifier drives, or traverse bridges, our plants use 50% less energy.
  • The liquid effluent from our plants is suitable for surface discharge or aquifer discharge.

  • Without the need for a separate settling tank and deodorizing, the plants require significantly smaller footprints than traditional plants, saving room for development and providing placement flexibility.
  • With greatly reduced mechanical components and a unique membrane backwashing system, maintenance on the plants is greatly reduced, approximately 30% less than an AS process plant.
  • The accelerated biologic treatment leads to less equipment and effort required for sludge digestion and solids removal.
  • With the SCADA system and no settling tank, plant monitoring and control is fully automated, eliminating the need for onsite supervision.
  • Using a systems approach and the highest component standards, the plants are “hardened” with near total ability to survive tornados, hurricanes, earthquakes, and extreme cold events.
  • The efficient, low pressure membrane bioreactor reduces fouling and membrane wear.
  • The plants have no offensive odor and require no process chemicals.

Typical MBR System Installation Requirements:

  • Minimal power feed of 220v/50 amps. Can be configured to accept 210-440 VAC power, single or three-phase.
  • 2000 to 15,000 sf/0.3 acres of level ground area to accommodate the plant, control and power distribution, and truck access (Plants can be placed at the bottom of a slope, partially buried for aesthetics).
