M|MBR Systems has grown into a leading membrane bioreactor manufacturer and distributor, Backed by Sciens Water, IWS has the vision to build a world-class water and wastewater treatment company. We are thrilled that M|MBR Systems has joined IWS and the Sciens Water team to help make this vision a reality. 

M|MBR will drive MBR-related products and services for the companies under the growing IWS umbrella.

  • For design-build and turnkey construction projects and other types of field services, customers can contact IWS.
