MeurerMBR CERTIFIED FOR CALIFORNIA TITLE 22

Certified MBR Selected for WateReuse Research Foundation Study

GOLDEN, COLO—September 28, 2011— MeurerMBR, the only back-pulsable flexible flat-sheet membrane bioreactor available, has been certified to produce effluent suitable for reuse, in compliance with the California Water Recycling Criteria, Title 22. Certification was completed under the product’s original name, MRI BIO-CEL® MBR.

Equipped with the new chemical-free Mechanical Cleaning Process (MCP), MeurerMBR outperformed Title 22 requirements in all areas, with excellent filtrate turbidity not exceeding 0.1 NTU, and a 4.0-log removal of virus at 50th percentile.

Engineering firm MWH conducted Title 22 certification testing and subsequently selected MeurerMBR and the optional granular-bead MCP for a WateReuse Research Foundation study. The study is designed to develop new disinfection guidelines for satellite MBR water recycling facilities, and seeks to develop more stringent guidelines attainable with the higher quality effluent produced by MBRs.

In January 2011, Muerer Research, Inc. (MRI) developed and adopted a new name and logo for their energy efficient MBR, changing the name from MRI BIO-CEL® MBR to MeurerMBR.

“Our investment in developing the MeurerMBR brand signifies our long-term commitment to deliver economically and environmentally superior systems. MeurerMBR specifically enables municipal and industrial treatment facilities to meet increasingly stringent regulations, and satisfy the need to re-use and re-cycle water,” said Lonnie Meurer, President, MRI.

Several patented advances enable MeurerMBR’s exceptional effluent quality, including the mechanical cleaning process, BIO-CEL® -MCP, which removes membrane deposits without using toxic chemicals and maintains membrane permeability. Also, flexible flat-sheet membranes with .04-micron pores provide true ultra-filtration.

MeurerMBR’s BIO-CEL® membranes are made with a unique, full-sheet permeable bond that retains flexibility and makes them strong enough to withstand back-flushing without damage, unlike hollow fiber or other flat-plate MBRs.

“We are very pleased by the exceptional performance of MeurerMBR during Title 22 Certification, and look forward to the results of the WaterReuse Foundation Study,” said Meurer.
