Water – a global necessity

Water is the most essential of all fundamental needs of human life. It is one of the most vital components that sustain life on earth. Although more than 70% of the earth’s surface is covered by water, less than 1% is suitable for consumption.

Due to rapid population growth, industrialisation, and agricultural innovations, there is an escalating demand for freshwater sources. The trend towards environment-friendly products is clearly visible in the water treatment sector. Countries adopt stringent regulatory measures for the reuse of water. Directly affecting the standards for clean water.

The provision of quality water has emerged as a key challenge for developed countries and regions that lack direct access to freshwater sources.

The wonder of MBBR water treatment 

To fulfil emerging consumer needs, high-performance membranes are needed for processing wastewater into clean water as the most effective solution for biological treatment.

MBBR filtration systems purify water to clients around the world.

MBBR system installations filter water by inserting a large amount of biomedia into the water tank. The small polyethylene or polypropylene carriers support the growth of bacteria which biodegrades the waste in the water, resulting in a clean effluent.

Biofilm carriers are very effective cleaners of waste water and sewage water. They are used worldwide in municipal waste water systems and for cleaning process water in a wide range of industries. The MBBR features are encouraging a number of new applications such as fish farming among others.

Production: The biomedia are manufactured by our state-of-the-art extrusion technology. We provide exclusive designs and added value to our customers when we support your development project and design process at an early stage of the project.

This enables us to utilise maximum extrusion output including special cutting and packaging to competitive logistics. We have multiple machines dedicated to MBBR profiles production. We can design the particular profile to your standards.

Flexibility: Due to our in-depth knowledge in plastics and biomedia design, we can influence factors such as density and obtain high tolerances on shape and length. Such factors differ per application and are an essential part of the performance of the profile.

Materials: We work with various materials for MBBR profiles. HDPE and PP are very commonly used material in these markets. We offer virgin materials, high performance mixtures, regrind, and more. 

Service life: In normal circumstances, Our MBBR biofilm remains its service life for more than 20 years. This is however dependening on aeration intensity and the state of the tank.
