Providing world-leading water technologies

Membrane Brine Concentration

The need for brine concentration has never been greater with increased focus on waste minimisation, zero liquid discharge (ZLD) and increased water recycling.


The AMBC (‘All Membrane Brine Concentrator’) is Modern Water’s cost-effective and proven technology for brine concentration. The AMBC is an innovative solution which significantly reduces waste water treatment requirements and maximises clean water reuse, by concentrating brine streams up to, and beyond, 160,000 mg/l.


  • Industrial Wastes
  • Reverse-Osmosis Reject
  • Zero Liquid Discharge (ZLD) systems
  • Flue Gas Desulphurisation (FGD) water
  • Food & beverage products
  • Oil & Gas or Mining wastes


  • Low operating costs
  • Cheap maintenance
  • Simple operation
  • Electrically driven (No thermal energy required)
  • Operates standalone or added on to existing systems

Industrial waste water application

The AMBC process has been successfully used for concentrating a waste stream in an industrial dye manufacturing facility in India. The AMBC is the key process step, it receives RO reject waste water from a reverse osmosis plant and concentrates this further, before being fed to a multi-effect evaporator. This is dirty and challenging waste water, but the AMBC has been reliably operating since it was commissioned in May 2018. 

Flue gas desulphurisation water application

In China the AMBC technology is being used to concentrate a Flue Gas Desulphurisation (FGD) waste water from a coal fired power plant. As China is bringing in new regulations, this is a rapidly growing market and in partnership with Sunup, Modern Water will play a major part in solving the waste water problems introduced by the FGD processes.
