Moving Bed Bioreactor (MBBR)

A Moving Bed Biofilm Reactor (MBBR)

requires less space than traditional wastewater treatment systems. The technology uses polyethylene biofilm elements operating in an aerated wastewater regime. Each individual biofilm element has a high protected surface area to support the growth of heterotrophic and autotrophic bacteria. This results in a high rate biodegradation within the system, which also results in process reliability and ease of operation.

The process is self-sustaining as the biofilm attaches to the element modulates of the incoming load fluctuation. The attached growth provides a more dense microbial population per unit volume (compared to suspended growth), resulting in compactness, lower power consumption, minimal maintenance and capacity enhancement.
