World Water Works, the designer and manufacturer of wastewater treatment solutions, has announced its IDEAL MBBR - Moving Bed Biofilm Reactors (MBBRs) - for upgrading existing industrial wastewater treatment facilities for overloaded, non-performing, and/or undersized systems. 

The IDEAL MBBR can enhance existing performance and increase capacity of existing treatment plants by being installed in a small footprint reactor(s) upstream of the existing biological system.  

It acts as a roughing reactor, unloading the existing system by 60-80%.  

Sloughing bacteria from the reactors pass onto serve to bioaugment and stabilise the existing system.  

In effect the IDEAL MBBR unloads the organic load on the existing biological process and continuously seeds it with new bacteria.

The performance of the existing system accelerates yielding much more consistent and lower impurity concentrations.  

More advanced bacterial cultures thrive which digest the solids further resulting in far better performance of the clarifier and an overall reduction of solids generated.   In the IDEAL MBBR, a thin film of bacteria grows on the free-floating proprietary plastic media. This thin, 50-300 micron, highly active “biofilm” is much more tolerant of toxic events and other variables as it consumes the organic material in the wastewater.  

The IDEAL MBBR media is 100% recycled providing a model of sustainability.The plant upgrade can be achieved with no disruption in facility manufacturing or wastewater system performance.  

World Water Works offers a special PAYS program which allows this upgrade to be paid overtime.  

The program also includes World Water Works’ world class extended service program and industry leading warranties. 

This combination of benefits makes an IDEAL MBBR system low maintenance and nearly worry-free. Join the many satisfied clients that have already undertaken this upgrade, enhancing performance, reducing upsets, lowering OPEX and achieving more treatment capacity.  

These IDEAL MBBR systems have been used in the following industries: food and beverage plants, steel mills, oil refineries, petrochemicals, chemical plants, and paper mills.
