Comparative Analysis of Moving Bed Biological Reactor and Aerobic Sludge Process

Student designed Lab scale model of Moving Bed Biofilm Reactor (MBBR) reactor for Industrial waste water treatment. It is a highly effective biological treatment process developed on the basis of conventional activated sludge process and fluidized-bed reactor. It is highly efficient for BOD, COD, Nitrate and biological phosphorus removal. Result of project shows that MBBR possesses contains excellent traits such as high biomass, high COD loading, strong tolerance to loading impact, relatively smaller reactor and no sludge bulking problem. Other Advantage of MBBR is the utilization of whole reactor volume in organic matter degradation, with no dead space or short circuiting. The process has good treatment efficiency and produces a consistent high quality effluent.
