Moving Bed Biofilm Reactor (MBBR) and Integrated Fixed-Film Activated Sludge (IFAS) systems are being considered and implemented with increasing frequency around the globe. This webcast will begin with a brief, general overview of these two process technologies including the fundamental aspects of the systems, specifically: media type, retention screens, aeration system, and key design considerations.

The presentation will compare MBBR/IFAS technology against conventional treatment methods and describe circumstances in which MBBR/IFAS systems are feasible options to consider. Case studies will be used to illustrate innovative applications of the technology in municipal and industrial facilities around the globe. Examples will include plant upgrades, retrofits, and new builds with supporting data. The webcast will conclude with a brief question and answer session taken from participants during the live event.

A brief, general description of IFAS and MBBR processes reviews the fundamental aspects of the systems. The presentation describes circumstances in which IFAS and/or MBBR are feasible options to consider. Case studies were used to illustrate comparisons of IFAS and MBBR technologies to other options. IFAS and MBBR design considerations are described.

The moving bed biofilm reactor (MBBR) and integrated fixed-film activated sludge (IFAS) processes can operate as a two (anoxic) or three (aerobic) phase systems with buoyant free-moving plastic biofilm carriers. Selectively, these systems can be used for municipal and industrial wastewater treatment, aquaculture, potable water denitrification, and in roughing, secondary, tertiary, and sidestream applications. This webcast summarizes state-of-the art MBBR and IFAS design procedures.

The webcast covers a wide range of process and practical design considerations for IFAS and MBBR based on experience gained from the “first generation” implementation of these technologies in North America.  An introduction provides a general overview of the technologies, a discussion of the drivers for the selection of these technologies, and a few full scale examples of how they have been successfully applied to address a number of wastewater treatment needs.

The discussion of process design considerations include: pilot and bench scale testing, model calibration parameters, and optimization of the reactor configuration based on the evaluation of full scale operational data.  Practical design considerations include: a discussion of evaluation factors, process configurations, screening requirements, aeration system design, media retention sieves, approach velocities, foam and scum removal, and maintenance provisions.
