ANITA™ Mox

ANITA™ Mox

ANITA™ Mox is a moving bed biofilm reactor (MBBR) for treating wastewater with high ammonia concentrations (200 to 2,000 mg/L), provided exclusively by Kruger, a subsidiary of Veolia Water Solutions & Technologies. With patented controls, ANITA Mox removes nitrogen from sidestreams — such as those from anaerobic digesters — with 60 percent less air than conventional nitrification and no supplemental carbon. This significantly reduces the energy need and cost of operations.
