Case Study: MBBR Solution Delivers in Minnesota

Source: Headworks International Inc.

Moorhead Wastewater Pollution Control Facility, located in Minnesota, is one of the oldest installations using moving bed biofilm reactor (MBBR) technology to clean the wastewater generated in their community, treating 6 million gallons of wastewater per day.

Through a comprehensive evaluation of technologies conducted in 2002, the Headworks Bio ActiveCell media, developed by the former Hydroxyl Services company recently acquired by Headworks, and the innovative design process proposed by the company's engineering team, were compared against other biological wastewater treatment processes including conventional methods. After piloting the comparative technologies and completing a five-month pilot program testing the effectiveness of ActiveCell biofilm media, the ActiveCell MBBR process was selected as the most efficient cost-effective upgrade solution for this large municipal wastewater treatment plant.
