  • Moving bed biofilm reactor (MBBR) incorporates benefits provided by both attached and suspended growth systems. It is an advanced high rate wastewater treatment technology with high treatment efficiency; low capital, operational, maintenance and replacement cost; single reliable and robust operation procedure. Moreover, this technology is applicable to wide range of wastewater flows ranging from 10,000 to 150,000 m3 day−1. The MBBR has proved to be effective in removing up to 90 % chemical… CONTINUE READING
