MSR’s Successful Commission of an MBBR System

​MSR recently successfully commissioned a moving bed biofilm reactor (MBBR) system for a recycling facility on Vancouver Island!

Due to high variability in the types and quantities of materials received by recycling facilities, the leachate from these sites can be challenging to treat. For example, the leachate on this site regularly contained high quantities of metals and organics, and other contaminants which varied between sampling events.

The ultimate MBBR system will treat leachate from the site to a quality where it can be discharged into the local Municipal wastewater system for further treatment.

The MBBR media was visible through the side of the fiberglass reactor. The movement of the media is mesmerizing, and we’ve called it ‘Dance of the Media’.
