lagoon in Laurelville, Ohio, and other locations in Canada. Performance data are shown in Table 4.25, and an example of the AquaMat® process is shown in Figure 4.35.
The Moving Bed™ Biofilm Reactor (MBBR™) is marketed by Kaldnes North America, Inc. (Providence, RI). The process is similar to the AquaMat® process except that thousands of small polyethylene wheels, as shown in Figure 4.36, are suspended in the lagoon. A sufficient number of these wheels provides adequate surface area for the growth of nitrifiers. An aerated lagoon in Johnstown, Colorado, has been successfully upgraded using the MBBRTM process.
