Utilizing fixed-bed biofilm technology for wastewater treatment, Active Water Solutions has developed a more effective alternative to activated sludge (AS) suspended growth systems. Our submerged fixed-bed biofilm reactor (SFBBR) leverages the commercial success of this technology, proven and used in Europe for decades, to treat domestic wastewater. The treatment units are simple to operate & maintain, as the gravity flow design and robust growth do not need a return activated sludge component to keep the bacteria happy and healthy. This also reduces operation and maintenance requirements and makes the unit capable of easily handling variations in volume and concentration. The footprint is often much smaller than AS systems and produces less sludge. What sludge is produced is compact and has good settling characteristics.
