New Plant

Moving Bed Biofilm Reactor (MBBR) and Integrated Fixed-Film Activated Sludge (IFAS) technology is a smart solution when space constraints and costs are determining factors in building a new plant. The MBBR/IFAS system provides reliability, simplifies operation, and requires less space than traditional wastewater treatment systems.

This technology provides cost-effective treatment with minimal maintenance since MBBR processes self-maintain an optimum level of productive biofilm. Additionally, the biofilm attached to the mobile biocarriers within the system automatically responds to load fluctuations.

  • Features + Benefits
  • Related Products
  • Compact design – a fraction of the size of conventional systems
  • Expandable – capacity can be easily upgraded by simply increasing the fill fraction of biofilm carriers
  • Single pass process – in the MBBR configuration, no return activated sludge stream is required
  • Load responsive – actively sloughed biofilm automatically responds to load fluctuations
  • Minimal maintenance – no F/M ratios or MLSS levels to maintain
  • MBBR  processes are an excellent solution for common wastewater applications including:
    • BOD Reduction
    • Nitrification
    • Total Nitrogen Removal
  • MBBR/IFAS systems deliver a flexible, cost-effective, and easy-to-operate means to address current wastewater requirements and the expandability to meet future loads or more stringent discharge requirements within a compact design
