Why Choose MBBR Technology to Optimize Your Current Sewage Treatment Process?

In both municipal and industrial settings, dealing with the organic matter in wastewater can be difficult. As regulations for treated wastewater become more and more stringent, municipalities and commercial/industrial organizations are looking for technology that can meet environmental demands. For organic materials, one of the most effective methods of treatment is integrating a biological sewage treatment process. Of course, many cities, towns, communities, and companies already have such a process in place for treating their wastewater. However, many of these systems, especially those that have been in place for some time, can be optimized to improve treatment efficiency and lower operating costs.

One of the easiest and most effective ways to optimize existing biological systems is intregrating a moving bed biofilm reactor process (MBBR). These systems take aspects of two other treatment systems to utilize their advantages without their disadvantages. One such system is the tried and true activated sludge process (ASP), and the other is a trickling filter. MBBR takes the idea of a suspended media from ASP, while also pulling from the fixed film aspect of trickling filters.

Therefore, why exactly should you choose an MBBR treatment process to optimize your current biological sewage treatment system?
