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 environmentally-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.

Moving Bed Biofilm React:
The wonder of MBBR water treatment 

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

MBBR filtration profiles 

MBBR system installations f filter water by inserting large amounts of biomedia into the water tank. 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 wastewater and sewage water. They are used worldwide in municipal wastewater systems and for cleaning in a wide range of industries. 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 add value by supporting your project development and design from the earliest stage.

This enables us to optimse the end-to-end extrusion process, from special cutting and packaging to competitive logistics. We have multiple machines dedicated to MBBR profile production. We can design a particular profile to your standards.

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

Materials: We work with various materials for MBBR profiles. High density polyethylene and polypropylene 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 bio film has a service life of more than 20 years. This is, however, dependent on aeration intensity and the state of the tank.

The wonder of Membrane Bioreactor (MBR) water treatment

To fulfil emerging consumer needs, high-speed filtration membranes are needed for processing wastewater into clean water.
