BioPortz is a moving media system for use in Integrated Fixed-film Activated Sludge (IFAS) and submerged fixed-film (SFF) systems. Independently moving BioPortz carriers continually circulate through the aeration basin in a random motion, ensuring excellent oxygen and substrate transfer to the biomass.
BioPortz is a cost-effective solution for existing activated sludge plants that need more advanced treatment. Because little or no additional tankage is required, BioPortz is an ideal solution for plants with limited room for expansion. It is also an excellent choice for space efficient, high performance new plant designs.
BioPortz can be used in a variety of configurations, improving wastewater treatment with little or no addition of aeration basins or clarifiers—a significantly less expensive way to upgrade activated sludge plants.
The basic elements of the BioPortz system are:
- attached growth media
- media retention screens
- an aeration system.
