Flootech’s FlooBed bioreactor is a biological treatment process based on the moving bed bioreactor (MBBR) principle, where microorganisms are attached on carriers to break down organic compounds. The core component of the FlooBed process is the carrier element. Combined with optimized aeration and mixing, the microorganisms form a biofilm on the surface of the carriers and remove organic compounds. The carriers are suspended inside the reactor and are mixed efficiently through aeration.
The FlooBed solution has been selected for several applications, such as effluents from process industries, landfill leachate and municipal wastewaters. In the pulp and paper industry, FlooBed has been built into the mill area for pretreatment of existing activated sludge plants and for new mills with high requirements.
