Moving Bed Biofilm Reactor

Moving Bed Biofilm Reactor (MBBR) technology represents a groundbreaking approach to wastewater treatment, offering unparalleled efficiency and sustainability. With specially designed media carriers fostering a dynamic biofilm ecosystem, MBBR tanks excel in removing organic pollutants, suspended solids, and nutrients from contaminated water.

In our case studies, MBBR tanks have consistently demonstrated exceptional performance, surpassing conventional treatment methods and meeting stringent regulatory standards with ease. Municipal wastewater treatment plants equipped with MBBR technology have achieved remarkable results, reducing influent BOD levels from 200-300 mg/L to less than 10 mg/L, and COD levels from 350-500 mg/L to under 50 mg/L.

Similarly, industrial facilities grappling with high-strength wastewater have witnessed significant improvements, with influent BOD concentrations ranging from 500-800 mg/L dropping to less than 20 mg/L, and COD concentrations decreasing from 800-1200 mg/L to below 100 mg/L.

High Treatment Efficiency


MBBR tanks provide high treatment efficiency due to the large surface area available for biofilm growth on the carrier media. This allows for effective removal of organic pollutants, suspended solids, and nutrients from wastewater.

Resilience to Shock Loads


The biofilm attached to the carrier media in MBBR tanks provides a buffer against shock loads and fluctuations in wastewater composition. This ensures consistent treatment performance even during peak flow or load variations.



Compared to traditional wastewater treatment systems, MBBR tanks often have lower capital and operational costs. Reduced energy consumption, minimal chemical usage, and lower maintenance requirements contribute to overall cost savings.

Compact Design


MBBR tanks have a compact design, allowing for high treatment capacity within a relatively small footprint. This is advantageous for plants with limited space or those seeking to expand without major infrastructure changes.

The MBBR media plays a pivotal role in wastewater treatment, providing a surface for microbial attachment and biofilm formation. This biofilm serves as the catalyst for pollutant degradation, facilitating efficient removal of organic matter, nutrients, and contaminants from the wastewater. The design and characteristics of MBBR media directly influence the treatment efficiency, resilience to shock loads, and overall performance of the MBBR system, making it a cornerstone of modern wastewater treatment technology.
