The Compact MBBR is a highly effective biological treatment process based on a combination of conventional activated sludge process and biofilm media. The MBBR process utilizes floating High Capacity Carrier media within the aeration and anoxic tanks.
The microorganisms consume organic material. The carriers, in highly porous plastic material, are movable inside the tank.
The biological mass adheres and grows on the surface of the carrier, especially inside.
The carriers have a high surface area that reduces the footprint of the tanks required to treat the wastewater.
The treatment process can be aerobic and/or anaerobic and operates at high volume loads.
