Active Coke Fixed Bed Bioreactor (AKFBB)
The Active Coke Fixed Bed Bioreactor (ACFBB) is a highly efficient and economic waste water treatment method for the cleaning of industrial waste water from the Petrochemical-, Textile-, Chemical- and Oilindustries as well as from other origin as e.g.from waste disposal sites.
The ACFBB is a submerged active coke fixed bed bioreactor. In the upper part of the ACFBB an aeration system is installed to aerate the ACFBB effectively.
The good performance of the ACFBB has ist origin in the special properties of the used active coke and the selected special bacteria population.
Also very resistant and normally non degradable organic substances and dyes can be biodegraded.
After adsorption of the organic substances or dyes on the active coke surface the formed biomass is biodegrading the organic pollutants.
According to current experiences in lab– and Pilot plant scale the active coke has a durability of up to several years of permanent usage. Because of the very good abrasion resistance nearly no abrasion occurs. The special process conditions and the used bacterias avoid surplus sludge formation.
The ACFBB is suitable for biological treatment of industrial wws with pollutants like AOX, phenols, PAH and organic dyes.
The process can be used
The ACFBB has also been tested successfully in the biological treatment of polluted groundwater, to remove HCH (Lindan) from the groundwater.
Ab has experience and relults from lab and pilot plant tests with wws of the following industries:
The Active - Coke - Fixed - Bed - Bioreactor has the following advantages:
Examples for application
Application and results with the ACFBB
To solve a customers ww problem, AbC offers at first lab tests . If this tests are successful, AbC offers pilot plant tests on site to demonstrate the special ww treatment process and to get datas for the plant design.
Design, construction and start up of ACFBB wwt plants:
AbC designs the ACFBB waste water treatment plants based on the test results with lab- and pilot plant apparatus. Design, basic– and detail engineering is done in co-operation with VAP-ec (engineering) and Puritec, Mr. Michiel Schöller (www.vap-ec.de).
In most cases prefabricated units can be used, which will be equipped with the necessary technology for the wwt-operation. The prefabricated units will be transported to the customers plant on site and fitted into the existing infrastructure. Bigger plants will be build on site.
