Nature is full of examples of smart, efficient processes, and we have been inspired by a number of them when designing our MBR modules. This has been very successful, resulting in low energy costs, minimal cleaning and high water quality. We gradually develop our systems to improve them even further, always with the same guiding principle: natural efficiency.
