Application Parameters

The Problem: Covanta (formally Advanced Waste Services) was experiencing high concentrations of COD/BOD in their waste stream that is hauled in for onsite treatment. The plant was not able to meet the effluent discharge requirements set forth by the local municipality.  

The Solution: bioprocessH2O supplied a bioFAS™ MBBR biological treatment process designed for COD reduction. The self‐regulating biofilm process simplified system operations while meeting compliance standards.

Status/Results: The bioFAS™ MBBR Treatment System reduces the COD to compliance standards for discharge to the local municipality.
