MBBR (Moving Bed Biofilm Reactor)

Wastewater treatment technologies designed to enhance biological treatment processes for the removal of pollutants

How the MBBR processes wastewater

In MBBR systems, plastic biofilm carriers are suspended in the wastewater. Microorganisms grow on the surface of these carriers, forming a biofilm that provides a large surface area for biological treatment.

The carriers move within the reactor, ensuring constant contact between the microorganisms and the wastewater.

MBBR is known for its flexibility, ease of retrofitting existing treatment plants, and resistance to shock loads. It is commonly used for BOD (Biochemical Oxygen Demand) and nitrogen removal.
