Moving Bed Biofilm Reactors
Moving Bed Biofilm ReactorsThe MBBR is a two (anoxic) or three (aerobic) phase system with a buoyant free-moving plastic biofilm carrier that requires energy (i.e., mechanical mixing or aeration) to ensure uniform distribution throughout the tank. These systems can be used for municipal and industrial wastewater treatment. The process includes a submerged biofilm reactor and liquid-solids separation unit. The installations include several process configurations and effluent water quality standards for carbon oxidation, nitrification, and denitrification. The MBBR process is capable of processing wastewater to meet effluent water quality standards ranging, for example, from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency definition of secondary treatment (30 mg/L total suspended solids [TSS] and …
