Wastewater Media

At bioprocessH2O, we offer an array of bioFAS™ MBBR Biomass Carriers, each designed to optimize different aspects of the moving bed biofilm reactor (MBBR) process. Our carriers are engineered to facilitate a self-sloughing, auto-regulating attached growth biofilm treatment process, making them ideal for various wastewater treatment applications.

How Biofilm Carriers Work

Moving bed biofilm reactors (MBBRs) are wastewater treatment systems that use an efficient biological technology to treat a variety of wastewater streams. MBBRs are suitable for industrial and municipal wastewater treatment applications, and they are effective at removing BOD (biological oxygen demand), COD (chemical oxygen demand), total nitrogen, and phosphorus from wastewater.

MBBRs work by using a moving bed of plastic carriers, which are colonized by a biofilm of microorganisms. The wastewater is circulated through the moving bed of carriers, and the microorganisms in the biofilm break down the organic matter and other pollutants in the wastewater. This is performed in an aeration tank as you can see on the right.

MBBRs are a versatile and effective wastewater treatment technology that can be used to treat a wide range of wastewater streams. They are a good choice for businesses and municipalities that are looking for a high-performance, low-cost, and easy-to-operate wastewater treatment system.
