Description Of Fluidized Bed Biological Reactor

18.1.1 General Characteristics

A fluidized bed bioreactor, Figure 18.1,*8 is one in which the biofilm grows attached to small carrier particles that remain suspended in the fluid, i.e., fluidized, by the drag forces associated with the upward flow of water. The term bioparticle generally denotes a biofilm covered carrier particle, although in some cases (e.g., granules)
