The Moving Bed Clarifying Reactor – AGAR® MBCR is a unique and proprietary technology which combines biological treatment and clarification in one reactor. The MBCR, which is ideal for decentralized WWTP, was developed following our many years of experience designing and operating MBBR WWTPs.
The objective was to simplify operation and reduce capital and operational expenses related to solids separation. Usually, an MBBR system is followed by a solids separation unit such as a DAF or the AGAR® MC. The MBCR incorporates the secondary clarifier in the bio-reactor.
The tank is divided into two process zones – an MBBR zone and a settling zone. The bio reactor utilizes attached growth on the patented Aqwise Biomass Carriers (ABC).
This innovative configuration reduces footprint and chemicals consumption, leading to lower capital and operational expenses compared to MBBR followed by other solids removal systems.
Due to its relatively small foot print and operational simplicity, the MBCR is an optimal solution for small communities and decentralized WWTPs.
