All performance parameters were matched while the sludge drying beds still remain unused!

The 50,000 cubic meters per day capacity installation involves new technology developed by the company CEO, dr. Hans H. Badreddine. The compact odorless facility incorporates a technology known as RBBR- “Returned Biomass Bio Reactor”, advancement on industry standard MBBR technology developed in the 1980s.

Engineer J.Yves Verheyen, the companies general manager described ‘RBBR’ as a proprietary advanced MBBR/IFAS process, where unique biomass carriers are intensively moved in compact Turbo Reactors ensuring an entirely attached growth process of biomass resulting in optimal effluent parameters all within a restricted footprint, practically free of odor, sludge, clogging and maintenance; an overall robust, flexible, cleaner and greener WWT process.”



Steady inoculation by thin biofilms in the pores and proper continuous operation of the proprietary
T4b-BioChip. No clogging seen as the thickness of the biofilm is permanently kept constant by self-cleaning of the microorganisms carrier.
