Key Message

Water and wastewater management in remote mining sites is always a complex issue. And this includes the supply of fresh water and the treatment of domestic sewage. The highly-robust MBR based on Berghof membranes delivers reusable water with minimum footprint, high modularity and simple maintenance. Moreover, it is easy to containerize. All these features are major benefits in remote sites, as confirmed by the operators of our running installations in mining camps.

Benefits of MBR Treatment with tubular UF​ for mining camps

The remote or isolated mining sites have temporary or permanent work camps for the workforce. As in any small village, domestic wastewater is generated. Improper wastewater management can damage the surrounding ecosystems and therefore, it is more common day after day that specific regulations are applied to water discharge from mining camps. Hauling wastewater from camps is expensive and on-site treatment is becoming economically advantageous.

Berghof Membranes tubular MBR provides effective decentralized treatment and makes the mining camps more sustainable, producing clean reusable water that cuts down on the complex and expensive supply of fresh water for the camp’s daily activities.


Minimum footprint, plug & play systems, easy to containerize, even for mobile installations.

Modular design

High modularity, easily expandable if capacity needs to be increased.

Minimum sludge

Ability to operate at high MLSS, minimum excess sludge production.


Robustness, ease of maintenance, automatic operation, long membrane lifetime.

MBR wastewater treatment for mining camps - the process

Mining camps in remote locations produce domestic sewage that requires on-site treatment for safe disposal. The tubular MBR is a compact and reliable process for removing the organic matter and nutrients. After equalization and screening for removing the coarse matter and debris, the MBR produces a superior quality treated water. This effluent  complies with the tightest discharge standards, and it also provides the chance for being reused in the mining site.
