As part of the 3.0 MGD Brattleboro, VT plant upgrade, BioPortz moving media were retroﬁtted into the wastewater treatment plant’s existing primary effluent pump station. The moving bed biofilm reactor (MBBR) served as a pretreatment station for a combination of domestic and industrial waste-water, with the capability to operate under aerobic or anoxic conditions. The goal is to reduce the BOD load prior to an existing and overloaded RBC system. Start-up is expected in Spring 2012.
