Eliminating BOD & TSS with MBBR & MBR Treatment Systems
Tradebe (2 FACILITIES) - connecticut
Industry: Centralized Wastewater Treatment
- Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD) Removal
- Biochemical Oxygen Demand (BOD) Removal
- Total Suspended Solids (TSS) Removal
Problem: Tradebe is a centralized wastewater treatment and recovery facility. The wastewater is highly loaded with BOD and COD and the local POTW demanded significant reductions in organic loading for discharge to the municipal sewer.
Solution: bioprocessH2O supplied a bioFAS™ MBBR biological treatment process using three (3) 50,000-gallon bioreactors for BOD and COD removal. Wastewater then flows to a bioprocessH2O supplied bioFLOW Membrane (MBR) System for MBBR effluent polishing, biosolids concentration and TSS removal.
Status/Results: The bioFAS™ MBBR System and bioFLOW MBR System effectively removes more than 90% of the COD and virtually eliminates BOD with minimal operator attention to meet local POTW effluent discharge requirements.
