Moving Bed Biofilm Reactor (MBBR)


Moving Bed Biofilm Reactor (MBBR)

  • Utilizes thousands of polyethylene biofilm carriers
  • Functioning in mixed motion within an aerated wastewater treatment sink
  • Aeration system keeps the carriers with activated sludge in motion
  • Bio carrier supports the growth of bacteria
  • Results in higher rate of biodegradation within the system
  • Ease of operation and cost effective
  • Support high volume load
  • Comparing to Activated Sludge Reactor
  • Biological process — toxicity rules apply
  • Requires primary treatment, Fats, Oil and Grease (FOG) < 100 mg/l
  • Treatment design and configuration is arranged according to inlet & outlet parameters, including wastewater temperature.
  • Organic and Hydraulic loading is variable, dependent on influent parameters and effluent goals.
  • Carriers move throughout tank with aeration or by movement of water by mixers in an anoxic tank.
  • No unused space in Reactor
