Increased regulatory requirements and population growth, alongside aging infrastructure, urge municipalities to build new wastewater treatment plants.
The design and construction of new wastewater treatment plants pose numerous concerns such as area availability, costs, continued increase of population and ever-changing environmental regulations.
Our AGAR® MBBR and AGAR® IFAS technologies address these challenges by using the benefits of the grown biofilm on our ABC media while presenting simple operation and adjustment to fluctuations in inlet loads and flows.
Municipal MBBR WWTP reduces the required area by up to 50% compared to other technologies such as activated sludge and SBR. Therefore, it is the optimal solution for situations where there are area constraints for new plants.
MBBR also provides the option for gradual expansion and improvement of effluent quality (the scalable WWTP), enabling just-in-time investment to investors and water companies.
As carbon recovery is an integral part of the process, AGAR® MBBR plants are more energy-efficient and are shifting the WWTP towards an energy positive process.
During the last 20 years, Aqwise designed and delivered numerous new municipal WWTP, serving small communities, municipalities, and megacities.
Our AGAR® MBBR, AGAR® IFAS, and AGAR® MC are well-established, cost–effective, and energy-efficient technologies for municipalities and water companies.
