The BIOROTOR is a Rotating Biological Contactor (RBC) system. Rotating Biological Contactor (RBC) is a type of secondary wastewater treatment which consists of a series of closely spaced, parallel discs mounted on a rotating shaft, placed just above the surface of the wastewater. Microorganisms grow on the surface of the discs which enables degradation of wastewater pollutants and improves water quality.
This completely modular system can incorporate all processes, including primary settlement, anaerobic digestion, anoxic and aerobic treatment, final settlement, and polishing and disinfection in a single arrangement.
The BIOROTOR automatically adapts to organic load and hydraulic variations.
