and loads, subsequently applying a physi-
cal-chemical treatment to eliminate organic
material and nutrients in a membrane bio-
logical reactor (MBR). This system combi-
nes the advanced anoxia and aerobes eli-
mination of nutrients, obtaining the optimal
water quality for its use, similar to the pro-
duct obtained in tertiary processes based
on ultrafltration membranes.
