Bioclere-OH is a two-stage hybrid biological treatment process integrating an AquaCELLTM moving bed biofilm reactor (MBBR) with a BioclereTM high rate trickling filter. The high rate productivity and oxygen transfer efficiency of the MBBR combined with the polishing and clarification capability of the Bioclere makes Bioclere-OH ideal for high-performance nitrification and denitrification applications. BOD/COD removal and partial nitrification are accomplished in the first stage MBBR by heterotrophic organisms allowing a robust population of nitrifying autotrophic organisms to colonize the trickling filter media bed and accomplish complete ammonia-N removal. Bioclere-OH is a fixed-film technology offering process stability, small footprint, minimal process control requirements and high-quality effluent.
AquaCELLTM is a moving bed biofilm reactor (MBBR) process in which millions of submerged polyethylene (HDPE) biofilm carriers operate in motion within an aerated or mechanically mixed basin. Each carrier element incorporates multiple cells of protected surface area to sustain a dense community of attached growth fixed-film microorganisms (heterotrophic and autotrophic bacteria). As the neutrally buoyant carriers move throughout the water column, oxygen and organic/inorganic material are available to the biofilm which absorbs, oxidizes and reduces these pollutants thus providing treatment. The dense population of bacteria provides high-rate productivity, enhanced nitrification/denitrification, process stability, small footprint and ease of operation
AquaFASTM is an integrated fixed-film activated sludge (IFAS) treatment process in which our MBBR biofilm carrier technology is incorporated with conventional suspended growth activated sludge. The hybrid process enhances volumetric productivity without increasing mixed liquor suspended solids (MLSS) concentrations. In doing so, it achieves high levels of performance in small footprints while reducing the impact of solids loading on the clarification process. AquaFASTM is an ideal low-cost retrofit solution for conventional activated sludge systems that are at or beyond capacity. Its small footprint and high-performance nitrification/denitrification capability also make it well suited for new construction applications.
Bioclere™ is a modified trickling filter over a clarifier (settling tank) that is designed to treat wastewater with varying organic and nutrient concentrations. Its natural fixed-film biological treatment process is resilient, energy efficient, compact and simple to operate. Within the Bioclere filter, wastewater is evenly distributed over the surface of plastic media where microorganisms known as biomass attach themselves to the media and consume BOD/COD and ammonia-N. Residual solids from the treatment process settle in the clarifier below the filter and are evacuated by a recirculation pump while clean effluent leaves the system by gravity. Modular Bioclere units can be installed in parallel to treat large flows or in series to achieve higher performance standards.
