MBBR Bio-Media is a moving media system, used in integrated fixed-film activated sludge (IFAS) and moving bed biofilm reaction (MBBR) system.
MBBR processes improve reliability, simplify operation, and require less space than traditional wastewater treatment systems. MBBR technology employs thousands of polyethylene biofilm carriers operating in mixed motion within an aerated wastewater treatment basin. Each individual biocarrier increases productivity through providing protected surface area to support the growth of heterotrophic and autotrophic bacteria within its cells. It is this high-density population of bacteria that achieves high-rate biodegradation within the system, while also offering process reliability and ease of operation.
This technology provides cost-effective treatment with minimal maintenance since MBBR processes self-maintain an optimum level of productive biofilm.
● MBBR bio-media technology offers more surface area, shorter residence time
● Ideal technology for plants with limited space for expansion
● Excellent choice for space efficient, high performance new plant design
● No backwash required, minimum service requirement
