The anMBBR (Moving Bed Bio Film Reactor) is a technological solution that enables the treatment of industrial wastewater in anaerobic digestion. The biomass used as the plant feeding is characterized by a low or no dry matter content, or highly diluted wastewater.
With the anMBBR reactor, biomass with very high energy potential can be enhanced. It therefore turns out to be an alternative to traditional treatments, which tend to be very energy-intensive, but essential for the proper management of biomass in the production chain. With retention time of less than 10 days, digestion takes place in variable thermal regime, psychrophilic or mesophilic
How anMBBR technology works
In order to ensure the proper anaerobic digestion process, virgin plastic elements called “carriers” are inserted into the reactor. Their shape ensures a high support surface for the proliferation of bacteria, allowing the creation of biofilm and enabling the digestion of the organic load by the bacteria in the effluent. In addition, they prevent the so-called bacterial run-off phenomenon (“Bacteria Wash Out“).
The configuration of the anMBBR reactor allows its application on new or existing production lines, mitigating plant operating costs.
The anMBBR technology advantages:
The company that chooses to install the Moving Bed Bio Film Reactor pursues numerous advantages, not only economically and environmentally, but also in terms of production system and resource optimisation:
- It allows an ON-SITE MANAGEMENT OF HIGH STREAMS;
- It has LOW DIGESTION VOLUMES;
- It is characterised by LOW ENERGY COSTS FOR THE MIXING SYSTEM;
- It provides FLEXIBILITY IN THE ORGANIC LOAD MANAGEMENT.
