An MBBR or Moving Bed Biofilm Reactor is a moving media system for use in Integrated Fixed-film Activated Sludge (IFAS) and submerged fixed-film (SFF) systems. Independently moving biofilm carriers continually circulate through the basin in a random motion, ensuring excellent substrate transfer to the biomass. ENTEX’s MBBR solution, BioPortz, utilizes our patented carrier design to maximize the available surface area for biofilm accumulation.
An MBBR solution is an ideal cost-effective solution for existing wastewater treatment plants which do not have aeration basins, clarifiers or lagoons and have limited room for expansion. It is also an excellent choice for space-efficient, high- performance new plant designs.
The basic elements of the BioPortz system :.
1. attached growth media
2. media retention screens
3. aeration system
