MBBR Moving Bed Biological Reactor (MBBR): from sewage to irrigation water
MBBR waste water treatment plants can be described as a sewage treatment process using Bio Film Carriers in which the organic digestive microorganisms get attached to specially designed plastic media. The Bio Media become carriers that build floating bed in the waste water.
The Bio-Film grows on the bio media surface and moves along with the water inside the reactor chamber creating what called the biomass. The biomass will stay inside the reactor treatment tank and is not taken out with the settled sludge.

MBBR Once submerged inside the bioreactor, the Bio Media operates as non-clogging media moving inside the tank. No channels or dead spots like in other technologies. The movement is caused by efficient aeration. Oxygen is supplied to the bacteria by air blowers placed inside the control room and high efficiency disc or plate diffusers at the bottom of the aeration zone. The Bio Media optimizes growth (biomass), and provides shelter and protection for the biomass and makes the Wastewater Treatment Plant extremely robust and reliable.

MBBR and MBR are different concepts for treating waste water. The MBR (Membrane Biological Reactor) system is using filtration units to separate treated water from the sludge.
