Biological Wastewater Treatment Overview

Headworks BIO Inc. offers biological wastewater treatment processes that can be used as secondary treatment for a variety of municipal and industrial applications. For over a decade, our team has researched and developed wastewater treatment systems and technology for moving bed processes, fixed-film wastewater treatment, and integrated fixed-film activated sludge (IFAS) wastewater systems.

The result of this in-depth research and development is our Moving Bed Biofilm Reactor (MBBR) technology – a biological wastewater treatment process– that can be adapted and designed for any application.

With approximately 15 years of experience in municipal and industrial applications, Headworks BIO is one of the oldest MBBR/IFAS technology providers in the biological wastewater treatment sector.

Biological wastewater treatment case study on ActiveCell media

Inland Empire Paper Company
The challenge for Inland Empire Paper Company was to meet the stringent effluent discharge limitations set forth by the Washington State Department of Ecology for direct discharge to the Spokane River. This was achieved in part by retrofitting an existing Stock Tank into an ActiveCell® Biological Reactor capable of reducing the BOD5 load by 44% prior to an existing Orbal ditch WWTP.
