Clear3 MBR.WWT Modular Membrane Bioreactor Remote Systems

The Newterra Clear3 prefabricated, pre-engineered, pre-tested Membrane Bioreactor (MBR) systems employ the industry benchmark—Veolia ZeeWeed membranes. With guaranteed delivery to meet your ship, barge or ice road schedules, the standardized modular designs and complete range of system types and sizes are reuse ready to meet or exceed local discharge requirements. Newterra has been providing remote camps with quality Modular MBR.WWT Sewage and Potable Water Systems from the high Arctic to the high plateaus of Chile to the middle of Africa.

A Newterra Clear3 decentralized membrane bioreactor system in the mountains of Telluride, Colorado with the system consisting of a white shipping container with double doors, electrical panels, and meters with electrical power hooked up via a Kohler branded power unit with a small municipal building and parking area

Product Overview

The Clear3 MBR.WWT Modular Wastewater Systems for stringent discharge limits or footprint concerns. These MBR Sewage Systems offer optional sludge treatment modules and modules for strict phosphorous and/or nitrogen limits.  You have options for reuse for camp toilet flushing, dust suppression, and ice roads, and these MBRs include inlet screening and equalization where required. The Clear3 MBR.WWT Potable Remote Systems tackle any water source from well, river, lake, brackish, and seawater sources and offer water safe systems for military camps and installations.


newtN SCADA: Systems feature sophisticated controls and advanced telemetry for 24/7 monitoring, diagnostics and control from anywhere

Sludge: We offer integrated sludge dewatering; filter cakes are suitable for incineration, landfill or use as fertilizer


Scalable: Our modular systems can expand as capacity requirements change – and be redeployed at the end of a temporary project if necessary. Developers can defer infrastructure spending by phasing in sewage treatment capacity in parallel with the phases of a project

Reduced Onsite Construction: Modular systems are pre-plumbed, pre-wired and undergo comprehensive testing, allowing for fast installation and minimized onsite work

Maximum Uptime: Proven, standardized components and strategic redundancy to allow continuous operation – even during maintenance procedures

Minimal Maintenance: Air scouring and periodic membrane relaxation prevent fouling; chemical cleaning is reduced over hollow fiber membranes

Operator-Friendly: Our ground-level module removal system is good example of the design considerations we incorporate for easy servicing and improved safety

Technical Specifications

The Clear3 MBR.WWT technology addresses a wide range of wastewater treatment applications requiring high-quality effluent to meet regulatory requirements or reuse.  It targets Biological Oxygen Demand (BOD), Total Suspended Solids (TSS), Bacteria, Total Coliforms, Ammonia, Nitrogen, and Phosphorus.

These MBR Systems also eliminate many pharmaceuticals from the waste stream, a growing concern for natural habitats and drinking water. With extensive experience with groundwater remediation, Newterra brings solutions for emerging contaminant challenges such as Perfluoroalkyl and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) and other compounds that may be present in the system effluent.

Effluent Quality

Biological Oxygen Demand (BOD)<5.0 mg/L
Total Suspended Solids (TSS)<5.0 mg/L
Ammonia-N<1.0 mg/L
Turbidity <0.2 NTU
Total Phosphorus<0.05 mg/L*
Total Nitrogen <3.0 mg/L*
*With nutrient removal options included, subject to influent characteristics

Enhanced nutrient removal design can achieve lower effluent results:

Total Phosphorus<0.05 mg/L
Total Nitrogen <3.0 mg/L

The ultimate process configuration is highly dependent on the following:

  • Influent concentrations
  • Variability in feed strength and flow
  • Desired effluent criteria depend on the ultimate receiver
  • Space available
  • Budget available
  • Climate considerations
  • Shipping constraints
  • Power available
