Biological Wastewater Treatment

Biological Wastewater Treatment Systems

Biological Systems include:

  • Sequence Batch Reactors
    CMAS (Continous Mixed Activated Sludge)

A Biological wastewater treatment system, is a wastewater treatment process that uses naturally occurring microbes to break down solids in wastewater to more simple substances. The goal of a Biological wastewater treatment system is to reduce BOD (Biological Oxygen Demand). In nature these ‘naturally occurring’ microbes would break down sewage and wastewater products that animals and humans generate. However the concentration of wastewater generated by people and companies require that this process be accelerated using technology to meet the higher throughput.
