Moving Bed Biofilm Reactor (MBBR) involves a biological process commonly used to remove soluble contaminants, such as BOD and COD (typically dissolved sugars and proteins).

In an AeroMBBR, wastewater is aerated in the presence of microorganisms that are attached to plastic bio-media. The microorganisms break down the contaminants and excrete a bio-solid, which can then be removed with an AeroDAF or via sedimentation in a clarifier.

Aerofloat’s AeroMBBR has patent-pending technology features make it a simple, low maintenance and cost-effective solution for biological wastewater treatment. The unique design of the (patent-pending) aeration lances allow them to be removed from the reactor while the process is still operating, eliminating the need to drain the tank or remove the bio-media. This results in minimal downtime and easier maintenance.

While the AeroMBBR has some unique features, Aerofloat is also experienced at building traditional MBBRs.

Easy Cleaning Without Downtime

The unique design of the AeroMBBR’s aeration lances allows them to be removed for cleaning while the system is still operating. This overcomes the need to drain the tank, remove the bio-media or shut the system down.

Sealed and Vented

The AeroMBBR can be sealed and vented, preventing any unpleasant odours from escaping.


The AeroMBBR is a compact biological treatment system due to the high concentration of microorganisms within it.


The AeroMBBR tank is made of polyethylene, which makes the system durable and cost-effective.
