Abstract:
    MBRs are one of innovative technology for waste water treatment. Biofilms degrade them and reduce its life span. Our designed bacteria can degrade these biofilms and save lots of money.
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    Membranes used in MBRs are expensive and its life span is very short. So it costs a lot for waste water treatment, our idea will make the waster treatment cheap.
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   Water treatment is one of main necessity, especially now that water reservoirs are depleting at an alarming rate in Pakistan. We need to recycle the water and use it wisely
How will the solution works
    We will design a specific bacteria that will contain a cloned gene, the enzyme produced by this gene degrade biofilms and save membranes of membrane bioreactors.
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    Our competitors are membrane manufactures, as our bacteria will enhance life span of these membranes the waste water treatment will be cheaper.
